Harris props up Air Force command and control systems

Work falls under $12 million Enterprise Security Support prime contract

Harris Corp. will secure command and control systems for the Air Force under a $12 million Enterprise Security Support prime contract.

Specifically, Harris’ work will support the Air Mobility Command by delivering mission-critical security support to 13 information technology systems essential to U.S. national and global interests, according to a company announcement released today.

System and network security support will include system certification and accreditation, network penetration testing, secure code validation, Defense Department Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process document creation and validation, and host-based system auditing.

“Harris has been a trusted information assurance provider to the Air Mobility Command for more than a decade, supporting vital missions and humanitarian relief at home and around the world,” said Mike Deloney, vice president of Air Force programs at Harris IT Services, in the announcement.

Harris, of Melbourne, Fla., ranks No. 13 on Washington Technology’s 2009 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
