Computer Sciences Corp. (NYSE: CSC) will deliver streaming video-as-a-service for the U.S. Navy‘s unmanned aerial vehicles under a potential $874 million contract, the company announced Tuesday.
The Falls Church, Va.-based information technology and consulting firm is one of three awardees on the five-year, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity, multiple-award contract.
Hal Smith, vice president of the company’s intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance group, said the company will work to apply its service delivery model to the battlefield.
The company’s release indicated that it picked up the capability as a result of its recent acquisition of unamnned aerial systems integrator Centauri LLC.
The company will compete for task orders to fly land-based drones and deliver streaming video from electro-optic and infrared cameras to military users in a remote theater of operations.
The video is for ISR applications and customers will only pay for video on an hourly basis.
