McDILL AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. – U.S. special operations experts are asking three information technology companies to provide intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, command, control, communications, computers, and services as part of a $780 million program.

Officials of U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM) at McDill Air Force, Base, Fla., announced three contracts collectively worth as much as $780 million on Friday for the Targeted Requirement Execution (T-REX) computers and surveillance equipment program.

Companies chosen are:

-- Barbaricum LLC in Washington;

-- iGov Technologies Inc. in Reston, Va.; and

-- NexTech Solutions LLC in Orange Park, Fla.

These companies, acting as systems integrators and coordinators, will provide intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) and command, control, communication, and computers (C4) related hardware and services to SOCOM.

These three companies will take over T-REX work from four contractors that were chosen in 2015 for the first T-REX project contract. Contracts for the original four contractors will expire at the end of this year.

The original T-REX contractors are:

-- Advanced Technology Solutions Inc. in Oakhurst, N.J.;

-- Barbaricum LLC in Washington;

-- Leidos in Reston, Va.; and

-- OSGSystems in Chantilly, Va.

The three latest T-REX contractors will provide equipment and services related to systems integration; hardware and modifications; specialized communications solutions and networks; and signal-processing capabilities.

The contractors will supply brand-name equipment in these four categories, as well as continuous increased capability and new technology insertions.
