Wireless Facilities gets first-responder deal

Wireless Facilities Inc. received a two-year contract potentially worth $29.6 million from the Defense Department's Technical Support Working Group for continued development and deployment of first-responder solutions, the company said today.

The Defense Department group is the federal agency that identifies and coordinates intragency and national research and development requirements for fighting terrorism.

Wireless Facilities' government network services division will build databases with tactical intelligence and navigational aids for site and location data that can be accessed via wired or wireless-network links by first responders, such as police, firefighters and paramedics. The company also will provide database training.

Wireless Facilities of San Diego offers outsourced communications and security systems engineering and integration services to the federal government, wireless industry and enterprise clients. It had revenue of $262.3 million for the fiscal year ended Dec. 26, 2003.

The company created its government network services division in January when it acquired High Technology Solutions Inc. Among its other government clients are the Air Force, Navy, Missile Defense Agency and the Homeland Security Department.
