Anteon International Corp. won a five-year $150 million contract from the Army to provide specialized information technology services for two multinational computer networks that support forces combating terrorism, the company said today.
Under the contract, Anteon will provide IT services for the continued development, operation and maintenance of the Combined Enterprise Regional Information Exchange System and Linked Operations Intelligence Center Europe programs, two global networks that support coalition forces in the worldwide war on terrorism.
"Today's environment demands increasingly complex information processing and telecommunications systems to counter international terrorists, regional extremists and traditional military threats," said Joseph Kampf, Anteon's president and chief executive officer.
Based in Fairfax, Va., Anteon is an information technology and systems engineering and integration company whose primary customer is the federal government. It ranks No. 19 on Washington Technology's 2004 Top 100 list of federal prime contractors. The company employs more than 8,200 workers worldwide and had 2003 revenue of $1 billion.
