Adobe Systems Incorporated (NASDAQ: ADBE) will enable deployed troops, support personnel and military leaders to collaborate more efficiently across the globe with conferencing software.

The Defense Information Systems Agency awarded Carahsoft Technology Corp., a government IT solutions partner of Adobe Systems Federal, a multi-year contract worth more than $93 million for the work.

The contract has a one-year base period and subsequent one-year options that extend into 2015.

Adobe and Carahsoft will continue to operate, maintain and enhance the deployed defense connect online system, which includes Adobe Connect.

The system provides advanced web conferencing, video conferencing and chat capabilities. It is used across the U.S. Defense Department and supports more than 500, 000 registered users.

“For the past several years, Adobe Connect has supported vital collaboration across the DoD’s complex and diverse environments, ” said Rob Tarkoff, senior vice president and general manager of Adobe’s digital enterprise solutions. “This new contract will enable continued growth and user acceptance of defense connect online as a vehicle for mission-critical, real-time communication. It stands as strong validation of our solution, and we look forward to ongoing work, along with Carahsoft, to meet the needs of the DoD.”
