Peraton Awarded Ground-based Midcourse US Army Contract
The U.S. Army, 59th Signal Battalion, awarded Peraton the Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD) Secure Communications Operations and Maintenance (SCOM) contract with the U.S. Army. The five-year Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract is valued at $14.9 million.
Under GMD SCOM, Peraton will operate and maintain Defense Satellite Communications System (DSCS) Military Strategic, Tactical and Relay (MILSTAR) and Defense Red Switch Network (DRSN) equipment and terminals at Fort Greely, Alaska. The contract supports the Missile Defense Agency’s provision of secure end-to-end communications connectivity for the U.S Army Network Enterprise Technology Command, 311th Signal Command Theater, 516th Signal Brigade, and 59th Signal Battalion.
“We are enthusiastic to continue our long-standing support of this vital national security mission,” said Roger Mason, president, Space, Intelligence and Cyber sector. “Peraton has been performing this work since 2009, with GMD SCOM representing the third successive contract award, now extending our trusted partnership for an additional five years.”
