4 Firms Land Spots on $492M Navy Digital Network System Increment III Support IDIQ

The U.S. Navy has awarded four companies positions on a potential eight-year, $492.4 million contract to provide increment III production units and related supplies for the service branch’s Automated Digital Network System.

Leidos (NYSE: LDOS), Leonardo DRSScience Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAIC) and Serco‘s U.S. subsidiary will work to support the tactical wide area network portion of ADNS under the multiple-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, the Defense Department said Monday.

ADNS is designed to provide submarines, aerial systems, shore-based platforms and surface ships access to WAN in support of the service’s internet protocol network operations.

The third increment seeks to boost ADNS network capacity through the use of higher bandwidth that new satellite communications platforms offer.

Contractors will perform work in Pennsylvania, Virginia and California, through June 2025.

The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command awarded the cost-plus-fixed-fee, firm-fixed-price contract through a competitive procurement process and will obligate $5,000 in fiscal 2017 other procurement funds to each winning contractor at the time of award.
