Boeing has received a one-year, $4.3 million contract extension from the U.S. Army to extend the company’s engineering support for Multimedia Message Manager (M3), a secure messaging capability.
The firm will continue to provide specialized software operations and maintenance support to military intelligence-gathering customers as part of the extension.
“M3 has remained at the cutting edge of technology, making it the secure messaging tool of choice for the Department of Defense Intelligence Information System and approximately 60 organizations in the Intelligence Community, ” said Dewey Houck, director of Mission Systems, a division of Boeing Intelligence & Security Systems. “This award demonstrates defense intelligence customers’ confidence in our ability to deliver the necessary technical solutions for their ongoing needs.”
According to Boeing, the current M3 contract began under the Army in 2009, after transferring from the Defense Intelligence Agency, which had managed the contract since 1990.
