iGov Awarded USMC Combat Operations Center (COC) Modernization Contract

RESTON, Va., Jan. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- iGov, provider of evolutionary tactical IT network systems and system lifecycle support programs, announced today it was awarded a 4-year, firm-fixed-price contract to modernize the Marine Corps AN/TSQ-239 Combat Operations Center (COC), through contract award number M67854-12-C-2429. The starting value of this contract is nearly $100 million with potential for more in the future. This effort will update and modernize the COC infrastructure providing significant increase in performance, a simplification of baseline management and reductions in operational and life cycle support costs.

The COC provides mobile, modular command and control centers across the span of tactical command from battalion to divisional level. It provides tactical data and C2 systems to the headquarters, including maneuver, fires, intelligence, logistics and administration. The system integrates non-secure, secret voice and data communications, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) capabilities and networked servers. Multiple networks (SIPRNET, NIPRNET, and coalition) are used to provide security and accessibility among interoperable users. This contract award modernizes the existing hardware within the approved acquisition objective.

"The ongoing success of our Marine Corps Tactical Collaborative Work Suite 2.0 (TCWS 2.0) Program, combined with winning the COC award, is a testament to our proven ability to successfully support the Marine Corps expeditionary IT programs," said Patrick Neven, iGov CEO and Chairman.

Mike Tyrrell, iGov President and COO noted that "winning COC fits perfectly into iGov's strategic plan for growth and expanding its portfolio of programs with the Marines. In addition, as part of our core company mission, we strive to deliver mission-centric IT solutions that simultaneously lower acquisition and operational support costs for any program. We're honored to have this opportunity and pleased with the confidence entrusted in us to provide critical C2 capabilities for our nation's Marines."
