The Army received five bids for the cost-plus-fixed-fee contract through an Internet solicitation, the Defense Department said Friday.
Exelis will also help defend the networks and perform work in Afghanistan, Iraq, Kuwait and Qatar.
Initially, the Army will obligate $30 million in fiscal year 2013 operation and maintenance funds for the award.
The Army Contracting Command’s office at Fort Huachuca, Ariz. is the contracting activity.
Exelis also holds an estimated $220.7 million contract to help the 160th Signal Brigade run its communications and information systems in the region.
