Object Services wins $89M Army deal

Army officialy recently awarded a three-year $89 million contract to an industry team led by Object Sciences Corp. to help operate and provide technologies for the service's Information and Security Command (Inscom) and Information Dominance Center.

Object Sciences will work with 14 firms to support Inscom, the command that helps protect Army networks. The industry team will provide computer services including architecture, collaboration and engineering, according to a July 30 company statement.

"Past disasters, current missions and future threats emphasize the critical requirement to fuse and visualize multisource, multimodal data to further development of tangible and targetable information," Russell Richardson, president and chief executive officer of Object Sciences, wrote in the statement.

In addition to helping protect networks, Inscom officials investigate the hacking of Army systems using counterterrorism, counterintelligence and information operations. The contract award follows comments from service and industry officials in recent months that Army systems experience daily, constant cyberattacks.

The contract covers one year with two option years. The industry team will provide personnel and help operate systems at Inscom headquarters at Fort Belvoir, Va., and command sites worldwide, the statement said.
