Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO), Dell (NASDAQ: DELL), Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT), Prodata Systems and SELEX Elsag will work with Lockheed to build the network for facilitating communication among NATO personnel and visitors, Lockheed said Wednesday.
NATO says construction of the new headquarters complex is scheduled to finish in 2016.
Angela Heise, vice president of enterprise information technology solutions for Lockheed’s information systems and global solutions business, said NATO wants the architecture to help users communicate via any network, device or application.
The team will build four integrated security networks that work to interoperate with NATO members’ systems, a data center and cross-domain information assurance technology.
The contract contains a five-year option for system maintenance work.
