Titan Corp. won a $32.9 million contract modification from the Air Force's Electronic Systems Center at Hanscom Air Force Base, Mass., the company officials announced Thursday.
Under the contract, the San Diego firm will integrate four near-real-time intelligence broadcast systems into a single, integrated, interactive service architecture for the Department of Defense's joint service Integrated Broadcast Service program.
With this modification, Titan will add the delivery of a final operating capability and technology to support regional combatant commands.
Titan was awarded a contract to build the interim capability for the broadcast service in May 2001, said Rob Kelly, a Titan senior vice president and general manager. The $53 million contract also had the potential for $6 million in additional award fees based on performance. Titan has been awarded most of those award fees, Kelly said.
The contract modification adds funds so that Titan can finish the job, he said.
The broadcast service will deliver time-sensitive information to military commanders through a single service, giving commanders easier ways to request and receive essential intelligence, reconnaissance and surveillance information.
By rapidly sorting and funneling relevant data, the service will bolster the ability of warfighters to execute their mission through shared awareness and intelligence and increased speed of command, according to Titan.
Titan provides information and communications systems solutions and services to the Department of Defense, intelligence agencies and other federal government customers. The company has approximately 10,500 employees and annual revenue of about $1.5 billion.
