Lockheed wins $100M NATO infrastructure contract

Lockheed Martin will design the active network infrastructure for NATO’s new headquarters under a new $100 million contract.

Under the five-year contract, Lockheed will design a new infrastructure for 4,500 users at NATO’s new headquarters in Brussels. The infrastructure also will have to support about 1,500 conference visitors.

Among the requirements are four integrated security networks that are interoperable with other NATO nations. There will need to be cross-domain information assurance solutions for interconnectivity. A new high availability data center will be built. There also will be unified communication and collaboration services.

Lockheed has put together a team that includes SELEX Elsag, Prodata Systems, Dell, Microsoft and Cisco. SELEX is a supplier of advanced communications solutions based in the United Kingdom and Italy. Prodata Systems is a Belgium-based IT company.

“We will work in partnership with the [NATO Communications and Information Agency] team to create a modern network where personnel can use their preferred method of communication easily, reliably and securely – no matter what network, application or device they choose to use,” said Angela Heise, vice president of enterprise IT solutions for Lockheed Martin Information Systems & Global Solutions.
