Computer Sciences Corp. will provide tactical data link support to the Defense Department under a five-year contract that could be worth as much as $6.9 million.

The indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity, cost-plus-fixed-fee contract covers tactical data link (TDL) systems for a range of Navy, Marine Corps, Army, Air Force and foreign military sales programs, according to a DOD announcement dated March 1.

Programs covered in the award include airborne tactical data systems; ballistic missile defense; command and control processor; common link integration processing; dynamic net management; joint tactical radio system; tactical systems (engineering, integration, test, evaluation, fleet) support; and associated subsystems, network, process and capability maturity model integration support, the announcement said.

Support will include the maintenance and modification of the TDL computer programs; life-cycle functions of systems; research and requirements analysis; systems engineering; software design and engineering; configuration management; modeling and simulation; and human factors engineering.

All work will be performed at government and contractor sites in the San Diego area and is expected to be completed Feb. 28, 2015.

The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific, San Diego, is the contracting activity.

CSC, of Falls Church, Va., ranks No. 9 on Washington Technology’s 2009 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
