Posted by John Keller

CHARLESTON, S.C., 17 July 2013. U.S. Navy cyber warfare experts are spending as much as $899.5 million and are involving 13 technology companies for integrated cyber operations -- or ways to defend military computers and computer networks and attack those of the nation's enemies.

Officials of the Space and Naval Warfare (SPAWAR) Systems Center Atlantic in Charleston, S.C. awarded contracts to 13 companies Tuesday for equipment and services for integrated cyber operations. The contracts are worth at least $179.9 million over the next year, and as much as $899.5 million over a possible four-year duration of the contracts.

Companies awarded indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contracts for the project are:

-- Booz Allen Hamilton Inc. in McLean, Va.;
-- CACI Technologies Inc. in Chantilly, Va.;
-- Computer Sciences Corp. in Falls Church, Va.;
-- General Dynamics One Source LLC in Fairfax, Va.;

-- Honeywell Technology Solutions Inc. in Columbia, Md.;
-- Engility Corp. in Mount Laurel, N.J.;

-- Secure Mission Solutions in Fairfax, Va.;
-- STG Inc. in Reston, Va.;
-- Systems Research and Applications Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary of SRA International Inc. in Fairfax, Va.; and

The contracts call for the 13 companies to provide research, development, production, and fielding of command, control, communication, computers, combat systems, intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance (C5ISR), information operations, enterprise information services (EIS), and space capabilities for cyber operations.

Each company will receive a minimum of $25,000, and will receive more money for individual task orders for efforts involving their individual expertise.
