TINTON FALLS, N.J., April 21, 2009 — Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] is one of six companies selected by the U.S. Army to compete for future task orders across the Battle Command Family of Products, an indefinite-delivery-indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract. Lockheed Martin will compete for task orders within the contract ceiling of $777M. All task orders must be initiated within the contract’s five-year period of performance.
The Battle Command Family of Products IDIQ contract vehicle will be used by the Army to obtain command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) services, products and solutions for the next five years. The Battle Command IDIQ development contract is managed by Project Manager Battle Command, based in Fort Monmouth, New Jersey.
“Lockheed Martin has provided the Army with net-centric command and control solutions for more than 10 years,” said John Mengucci, President of Lockheed Martin’s IS&GS-Defense. “We are honored to continue working with PM Battle Command to create capabilities that will form the core of the Army’s Unified Battle Command solutions throughout the force.”
Under this IDIQ contact, contractors will work to migrate the many systems linked by the Army Battle Command System into a net-centric, service-oriented architecture that will enable interoperability with other Army systems. Lockheed Martin expects to migrate and modernize the Global Command and Control System-Army (GCCS-A) capabilities into the Network Enabled Command and Control (NECC) system, while extending those capabilities and their interoperability with other Army, DoD, and coalition elements. Lockheed Martin also expects to develop cross-domain collaboration and interoperability solutions between the Army Battle Command System and key Army systems such as the Distributed Common Ground System-Army and Future Combat System. Lockheed Martin has supported the Army Battle Command System since 1994.
