RESTON, Va., 24 July 2009. NCI Inc., a provider of information technology (IT), engineering, and professional services and solutions to U.S. federal government agencies, won a task order worth an estimated $3.6 million to support the Air Force's Combat Information Transport System (CITS) Program Office.
The primary place of performance will be at Hickam AFB, Hawaii, with performance expected to begin August 2009.
This task order is new work for NCI and was awarded under the Network-Centric Solutions (NETCENTS) contract vehicle.
Under this task order, NCI will provide the CITS Program with an integrated, high-bandwidth, information transport capability to support the warfighter's current and future mission requirements at Hickam AFB and the local Hawaii Air National Guard sites, says a representative. The Air Force is transforming its networks from MAJCOM-centered islands to secure, unified, consolidated enterprise-centric networks as part of the Air Force's portion of the Global Information Grid.
The CITS work will help the Air Force meet its goals by upgrading and establishing the communications infrastructure for a centralized Command and Control (C2) capability and core IT services.
