ASHBURN, Va., 21 September 2006. The U.S. Coast Guard has awarded Telos Corporation a contract to provide a secure enterprise-wide messaging system for its 45,000 users. The contract establishes Xacta Automated Message Handling System (AMHS) as the enterprise messaging solution for the Coast Guard and is valued at a minimum of $600,000. Contract options could raise the total contract value to $3 million over four years.
The AMHS solution, developed by Telos' wholly owned security solutions subsidiary Xacta Corporation, is an encrypted Web-based system. It is scalable to support thousands of concurrent users, allowing them access to a secure messaging infrastructure without requiring additional external identification. Users will include, but are not limited to, Coast Guard Commands ashore and underway.
Under the terms of the contract Telos will engineer, install, and support the integration, operation, and maintenance of the AMHS solution.
