Telos Corp. won a $5.9 million contract from the Air National Guard to deploy wireless network solutions as part of a secure wireless local-area network build out.
The work is part of an implementation of secure wireless local-area networks for 25 of the ANG's active wings and regional training centers.
Under the contract, Telos of Ashburn, Va., will engineer and install deployable wireless LANs for off-base operations in support of military and homeland security missions.
Telos also will install a scaled version of the approved wireless network solution at selected ANG sites.
The installation will feature an 802.11a/b/g compliant architecture for the wireless network and an intrusion detection protocol to guard against unauthorized access.
