Army wants to bolster management of unclassified, classified networks

The Army is developing a new contract to modernize how it manages unclassified and classified networks in the U.S. and worldwide.

The contract is going by the acronym AM4PS for Army Modeling/Monitoring/Mapping/Management Performance System. Deltek estimates that it will be worth at least $100 million.

The service has kicked off the market research phase of the contract is asking industry to answer a series of questions:

  • Should there be a pilot before a major roll out?
  • How much would a pilot cost?
  • Give an opinion on a proof of concept.
  • Are there limitations and risks associated with using disparate manufacturers for end-user devices?

Several of the questions refer to the draft performance work statement. That document goes into detail on the requirement areas:

  • Modeling, including the NIPRNet (unclassified) and SIPRNet (classified)
  • Monitoring, including sensors and traffic analysis
  • Mapping, including network topology and endpoint mapping
  • Management, including IT network management and adherence to DOD and industry standards
  • Performance, including end-user experience, network flow collection, and optimization

The contract will support several Army goals including improving how it manages the “infostructure” as an enterprise to bring more capabilities and efficiencies. The service also wants to integrate several tools into network operations.

Comments on the RFI are due June 20.
