Telos recently received orders from the Air Force for nearly a thousand ruggedized laptop computers that will be used in aircraft maintenance operations.
The Air Force Reserve Command and the Air Force Special Operations Command placed task orders worth $4.3 million for the laptop PCs through Network Centric Solutions and a Network Enterprise Technology Command contract.
The orders call for Telos to resell 585 General Dynamics Itronix Corp. ruggedized laptop PCs to the Air Force Reserve Command for use at 18 sites in the United States and 289 laptops to the Air Force Special Operations Command for use at four of its sites: Hurlburt Field, Fla.; Cannon Air Force Base, N.M.; Kadena Air Base, Japan; and RAF Mildenhall, England.
Aircraft maintenance technicians on flight lines and in hangars will use the laptop PCs, which will be linked to bases' networks via a secure wireless local-area network that Telos designed and installed, the company said.
Telos of Ashburn, Va., is a provider of information technology products and services to the federal government.
