MCLEAN, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
A reliable connection to a communications network can be challenging on
land—and even more so when at sea. The U.S. Navy's Tactical Networks
Program Office (PMW 160) is responsible for ensuring the Navy has access
to secure and reliable communications networks on any platform,
anywhere. To support the modernization of these Tactical Networks, the
Navy's Program Executive Office for Command, Control, Communications,
Computers and Intelligence (PEO C4I) has selected Booz Allen Hamilton
(NYSE: BAH) to support equipping sailors, as well as joint and coalition
partners, with cyber-resilient, integrated networks and foundation
computer systems. PEO C4I awarded Booz Allen a $96.1M
cost-plus-fixed-fee contract, over a base plus four-year period, to
complete this mission-critical work.
"We are honored to be selected as PMW 160's primary industry partner to
synchronize Navy legacy programs with the Consolidated Afloat Networks
and Enterprise Services," said Ralph Wade, a Booz Allen Hamilton Vice
President and leader in the firm's US Navy and Marine Corps business.
"Booz Allen develops and deploys cost-effective systems engineering
solutions using technical expertise that harmonizes innovation with
practicality. We look forward to applying our cyber capabilities and
strategic prowess in digital platforms to strengthen the robust network
that Navy tactical forces rely on every day."
