Air Force to Modernize Operating Systems at Dozens of Global Bases

The U.S. Air Force has awarded Telos Corporation a $3.6 million task order to modernize the transport operating systems and authentication systems at 57 bases around the world.

The award provides for hardware, software and services.

The Air Force’s electronic systems center cyber integration division at Hanscom AFB, Mass., awarded the order through the five-year network-centric solutions contract vehicle. Telos is the prime contractor on the vehicle.

The Air Force, Defense Department and other agencies use the vehicle to buy network-centric information technologies, networking equipment and services. The vehicle secures voice, video and data communications hardware and software and telephony solutions, as well.

“We have recently received a number of awards for secure wireless work under the NETCENTS contract vehicle, ” said Brendan Malloy, SVP and general manager of the Telos’ secure networks group. “This modernization effort will further the warfighters’ ability to accomplish the mission by equipping them with the newest technologies that are available.”
