Army seeks 'copter command

The Army intends to release a request for proposals March 26 for an airborne command and control system to be mounted on Black Hawk helicopters.

A March 13 Commerce Business Daily announcement describes the Army Airborne Command and Control System as "a highly mobile tactical command post that enables the maneuver commander to maintain situational awareness and to exercise command and control while on the move."

It will host the Army Battle Command System and provide access to the Tactical Internet as well as intelligence data and mission plans.

SRA, Jacada form alliance

Federal agencies looking to extend the life of their legacy systems can now call on the combined expertise of Jacada Ltd. and SRA International Inc. for help.

SRA announced March 12 that it would use Jacada's legacy extension tools in its newly created Systems Transformation Center of Excellence. Jacada specializes in modernizing mainframe computer systems with e-business and wireless applications.

Under the agreement, the two companies will jointly deliver e-business solutions, consulting and training to SRA's federal clients that have large investments in mainframe systems and applications.

The partnership will focus on integrating and modernizing disparate systems that must maintain flexibility to adapt to an agency's changing business and mission requirements.

Guenther heads to TRW

After leaving his job as federal chief for Computer Associates International Inc., Otto Guenther is moving to TRW Inc., where he will be vice president and general manager of the company's tactical systems division. Guenther was the Army's first chief information officer.
