Lockheed Martin Corp. won a task order from the U.S. Joint Forces Command, under which it will provide technical and engineering support for the Joint Concept, Architecture and Requirements System.
JCARS is the information management system designed to support the Joint Forces Command's command and control responsibilities.
The task order, worth just less than $1 million, was awarded to Lockheed Martin's Systems Management unit in Marlton, N.J., said spokeswoman Jeanine Zeitvogel. The task order was awarded through CR2, the Army Communications-Electronics Command Rapid Response Program, an eight-year, indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract. It is the Army command's primary homeland defense security contract.
Lockheed Martin will provide engineering and technical support for the enterprise-based management information system to gather, collate, analyze, prioritize, document and trace all joint command, control, communications, computer and intelligence required capabilities, operational concepts, integrated operational architectures, systems specifications and other supporting information.
The performance period is one year with options to extend, Zeitvogel said.
Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin employs about 125,000 people worldwide and had revenue of $26.6 billion in 2002.
