TeleCommunication Systems (NASDAQ: TSYS) has been awarded a $3.3 million contract to provide professional services for a cyber operations training program run by the Air Force.
TCS will work with National Harbor, Md.-based management and technology consulting firm E-volve Technology Systems to help train the Air Force’s cyber workforce, TCS said Tuesday.
The contract contains a three-month base period and two option years.
Drew Morin, TCS senior vice president and chief technology officer, said the alliance will combine TCS’ cyber warfare training experience and E-volve’s technical services to support the Air Force component of the U.S. Cyber Command.
Work will include course design and development, instruction, administration, courseware maintenance and technical analysis.
TCS will also help the Air Force build technology to defend networks against cyber attacks in a simulated environment.
