Northrop Grumman wins video-teleconferencing deal

Northrop Grumman has received a $51 million contract to design, test and install new video-teleconferencing hubs for the military, according to the company.

The company and its sub-contractors will update the Defense Information Systems Agency’s integrated services digital network system with Internet protocol-based capabilities. The new system will provide up-to-the-second video and audio-conferencing services to DISA and users of the Global Information Grid-Bandwidth Expansion program, according to a Nov. 28 statement.

“This program will provide DISA with a key set of tools to enhance the Department of Defense’s net-centric operations capabilities by providing enhanced IP video and new collaboration resources to the warfighters,” said Otto Guenther, vice president and general manager of Northrop Grumman Mission Systems’ Tactical Systems Division.

DISA’s Defense Information Technology Contracting Organization awarded the Defense Information Systems Network Video Services II (DVS II) task order under the Encore I contract. The task order covers one year with one option year to transition to the DVS II system.

Northrop Grumman’s team members include:

Cisco Systems, San Jose, Calif.

AT&T, Bedminster, N.J.

FC Business Systems, Fairfax, Va.

CritiCom, Lanham, Md.

NETCONN Solutions, Hagerstown, Md.

Northrop Grumman Information Technology, McLean, Va.

Parsons, Pasadena, Calif.

Radvision, Fair Lawn, N.J.

AT&T received the first DVS contract, an eight-year, $125 million deal. It was awarded in 1997.
