Booz Allen to boost Army communications technology

Booz Allen Hamilton Inc. will provide the Army with technology, program management and engineering support under a Strategic Services Sourcing contract valued at $149.5 million.

The delivery order calls for Booz Allen to assist the Army's Space and Terrestrial Communications Directorate in upgrading its broadband and networking capabilities for Future Combat Systems programs.

"Future Combat Systems is not only the largest modernization effort in Army history, it is also one of the most complex networking of systems across the joint services," said Daniel Hampel, program manager at Booz Allen Hamilton.

The company will also work with S&TCD divisions to support antenna and spectrum analysis, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, global information grid tactical networks, information assurance and tactical wireless networks.

S&TCD is part of the Communications, Electronic Research Development Command at Fort Monmouth, N.J. It is responsible for supporting the Army's development of emerging future force communications technologies.

Booz Allen Hamilton, of McLean, Va., ranks No. 11 on Washington Technology's 2008 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
