AF makes net-centric award
Taking a major step toward the Defense Department goal of departmentwide network-centric operations, the Air Force awarded a 10-year, $213 million contract to upgrade its Strategic Command's Strategic War Planning System to Lockheed Martin Corp.
Together with Northrop Grumman Corp. of Los Angeles, Lockheed Martin of Bethesda, Md., had been working on the first phase of the new Integrated Strategic Planning and Analysis Network.
This phase called for developing the software architecture that would integrate several legacy analytical applications and allow better collaboration across the network. In this latest phase, Lockheed Martin will deploy the system.
