Engineered Support Systems, Inc. in St. Louis, MO has received a 3-year contract from the U.S. Army to provide a scaleable, highly-available, integrated, open-standards Command and Control Information Technology Infrastructure (C2ITI) for the Multi-National Forces - Iraq (MNF-I), the Coalition military command providing for security in Iraq at the request of the Iraqi Government. The "time and materials" contract provides an initial funding level of $12.2 million, with a ceiling of $279 million over the 3-year performance period. It will be performed by team led by Engineered Support's wholly-owned subsidiary, Technical and Management Services Corporation (TAMSCO), and will be supported by a number of subcontractors including Raytheon, Artel, AT&T, Obron and by Engineered Support's most-recently acquired subsidiary, Spacelink International LLC. Under this effort, the TAMSCO team will provide program management, architectural design and engineering, installation, operation and maintenance, network management and systems administration support. The MNF-I effort is a follow-on to a $52 million ceiling contract received early in 2004 by TAMSCO, to support the communications needs of the Coalition Provisional Authority.
