Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) has won a potential $320 million contract to provide information technology and telecommunications services to the U.S. Air Force within the Washington metropolitan area.
The company will run the Air Force’s Network Command Center, an IT communications network used by Air Force personnel in the area, Lockheed said Monday.
Angela Heise, vice president of enterprise IT solutions for Lockheed’s information systems and global solutions business, said the company has already helped the Air Force work toward consolidating the Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling and Joint Base Andrews networks.
Lockheed will provide the network center with enterprise applications and desktop support and projects, plans and engineering services.
The company will also create an enterprise-level migration platform for a centralized infrastructure of computers, networks, storage and virtualization.
Lockheed has already built a shared computing environment that aims to consolidate hundreds of network servers currently operating at numerous locations across the capital region.
