LGS YRP-2C team celebrates major milestone
One of LGS Innovations’ largest contracts is with the U.S. Army, in support of the Eighth Army headquarters’ historic move to U.S. Army Garrison-Humphreys in the Republic of Korea. Our contributions to this program were recently recognized during a photo opportunity offered by Lieutenant General Thomas Vandal, concurrent with the opening of the new Camp Humphreys headquarters facility in Pyeongtaek.
Camp Humphreys is home to one of the Army’s most active airfields and the center of the largest construction and transformation project in the U.S. Department of Defense’s history.
LGS network architects and engineers began work late in 2015 on the Yongsan Relocation Plan Increment 2C (YRP-2C) contract, administered via the GSA Alliant government-wide acquisition contract (GWAC) program. Our contributions have been playing an instrumental role in ensuring that our customer’s ability to communicate effectively throughout this transition has not only been maintained, but significantly improved. Thanks to the superior performance of our team, the LGS YRP-2C contract continues to expand, now reaching a total value exceeding $48M.
On July 11, U.S. and ROK military officials hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the new Camp Humphreys HQ to dedicate a statue of Gen. Walton Walker, a Korean War hero and former commander of the 8th Army. Gen. Walker was credited with defending the Busan Perimeter in the lead-up to Gen. Douglas MacArthur’s historic amphibious landing in Incheon during the 1950-53 Korean conflict.
During the ceremony, LTG Vandal congratulated LGS team members for their support in standing up critical network, command information display, and video teleconference systems.
“Our team members have worked tirelessly, to ensure that all systems were operational in time for the opening of the new Camp Humphreys headquarters,” says Jeff Fischer, LGS Director of APAC programs. “As the customer began to occupy the building and participate in the installation, our team provided extensive support to address our customer’s suggestions for system changes to more fully satisfy their requirements. It was truly a great, team-wide effort.”
