QinetiQ North America and Serco Inc. will act as subcontractors to ARINC Engineering Services on a $3 billion communications equipment contract with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
ARINC said in a Tuesday release that the Tactical Communications contract vehicle, known as TacCom, also supports the White House Communications Agency and the departments of Interior, Justice and State.
The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract has a potential five-year performance period.
The team will provide integrated, interoperable and open-architecture tactical communications to those agencies, said Brian Dewey, defense systems director for strategic planning and operations.
Other services could include communication site development, radio frequency system analysis and design, environmental and logistics support, site construction and system implementation.
