MCLEAN, Va., 5 March 2010. Global Defense Technology & Systems Inc., a provider of mission-critical, technology-based systems, solutions, and services for national security agencies and programs of the U.S. government, won a $10.4 million contract to continue supporting the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) in Washington, D.C.

GTEC will evaluate and develop electronic countermeasures techniques against radar-controlled weapons systems, develop new artificial-intelligence methods to sort the decision-making information captured by various sensor networks, create enhanced command and control systems and C4I mission applications, and design and fabricate optimized unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to serve as expendable decoys in hostile environments.

"Leveraging our core competencies in the development of advanced concepts and technologies to support the critical C4I and electronic warfare missions of the NRL plays exactly to GTEC's strengths," states John Hillen, president and CEO.

The one-year contract has four option years and is effective March 2, 2010.
