HERNDON, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–LGS Innovations, a technology company providing specialized mission-critical communication research and solutions, has announced that it has been awarded the five-year, $81.5M Network Modernization (NETMOD) data project with the U.S. Army Program Executive Officer Enterprise Information Systems (PEO EIS) Power Projection Enablers (P2E) team at Fort Belvoir, Virginia. The NETMOD Pacific (NETMOD-P) data project seeks to create a single, secure standards-based network. NETMOD will touch over 100 sites across the entire Asia Pacific Theater in several U.S. states and territories, reducing the number of entry and exit points to enhance network security.
LGS Innovations will provide engineering, furnish-and-install, securing, and testing non-classified Internet Protocol (IP) router network (NIPRnet) switching equipment and ancillary components under the NETMOD-P project for all Army bases, camps, posts, and installations throughout the Pacific Command.
“This is an exciting project for the U.S. Army, and LGS is proud to be a part of it,” said Kevin Kelly, CEO of LGS Innovations. “Network security and efficiency is key to mission success, and the NETMOD program will help standardize Army networks across the Pacific theater with the Defense Information Systems Network protocols, allowing the Army to move further down the path to achieving the Joint Information Environment.”
In addition to supplying area core and distribution switches, LGS will also provide regional support and delivery of NIPR network services, and enable the migration from legacy, non-IP infrastructure and systems to an IP packet switch-based infrastructure supporting assured and non-assured services. The contract also provides infrastructure and facilities services to bring the Pacific Theater network to the latest operational requirements specified by the Army and DISA.
