Titan Corp. has won a $100 million contract with the U.S. Army to sell communications products and support services to American allies, the company announced May 16.
Titan of San Diego will provide radios, equipment and support services to U.S. allies around the globe through a five-year, indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract with the U.S. Army's Communications and Electronics Command located at Ft. Monmouth, N.J.
Through the contract, HF and VHF handheld and manpack radios will be made available to U.S. allies in Asia, Europe, Australia, Africa and South America for a range of purposes, including the global battle against terrorism.
Prior to this contract, each country wishing to purchase Titan's interoperable radios was required to establish a separate contract. The new contract permits allies to acquire radios, equipment and support services directly through CECOM.
Titan Corp. is a provider of information and communications systems solutions and services to the Department of Defense, intelligence agencies and federal civilian agencies. The company has 11,000 employees and annual revenue of $1.4 billion
