VIENNA, Va., 23 Aug. 2007. Serco Inc. has won a $62 million, three-year contract that expands its partnership with the U.S. Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center (SPAWARSYSCEN) San Diego to design and deploy advanced anti-terrorism systems for ships and infrastructure at U.S. Navy ports and federal facilities.
Under the Naval Electronic Surveillance Systems (NESS) contract, Serco will provide engineering, technical, logistical, and management services for a range of government agencies. The contract value could reach $115 million if all five of the six-month award options are exercised.
This contract represents an extension of a separate, $63.9 million port security contract awarded to Serco in April. Together, these contracts will enable SPAWAR to integrate more effective and efficient communications between federal and state and local government agencies and improve their ability to collectively respond to terrorism threats.
In addition to extending across U.S. Navy agencies such as the Program Executive Offices (PEO), Commander Naval Installation Command (CNIC), and Naval Intelligence Command (NAVINTCOM), Serco's Anti-Terrorism/Force Protection services are being offered to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Coast Guard (USCG), and other Department of Defense agencies and government activities.
