The Army awarded a $146 million contract June 29 to Computer Sciences Corp. to merge four systems that track cargo and vehicles into one servicewide network.

CSC and its six-vendor team will perform configuration management, disaster recovery, help-desk support, integration, network implementation, network and enterprise systems management, software development, software and hardware maintenance, and training, according to a statement.

The Army's Transportation Information Systems' program consists of four networks:

Army Automated Airload Planning.

Transportation Information Systems-Theater Operations.

Transportation Coordinator Automated Command and Control Information System.

Transportation Coordinator Automated Information for Movement (TC-AIMS) II.

CSC and its industry team will also develop three more versions of TC-AIMS II. The system will combine the functions of the three other systems when fully developed and fielded, the statement said.
