• computer peripherals
• routers and other gear related to network communications and management
• power subsystems and related equipment
“CHS-4 is a very flexible contract that purchasers from across the U.S. military and other government organizations can use to acquire the latest commercial computing and communications technologies, ruggedized for their special requirements, ” said Mike DiBiase, vice president and general manager of computing technologies for General Dynamics C4 Systems.
“Among other advantages, CHS-4 is the ideal vehicle to deliver on the Army’s agile acquisition process for participants in future network integration evaluation exercises, starting with 12.1 later this year.”
