Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) has won a potential four-year, $93 million contract to help the U.S. Marine Corps develop and maintain software for a command and control personal computer system.
The company will also provide software development and maintenance support for a tactical service oriented architecture under the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, the Defense Department said Friday.
C2PC is designed to help Marines view the common operational picture from a Global Command and Control System-based server and exchange tactical information from other C2PC workstations.
The TSOA system consists of software platforms designed to offer a common, open architecture for C2 applications across the Marine Air-Ground Task Force.
Northrop is scheduled to complete the base period of performance Dec. 30, 2017, and could extend work through 2021 if the service branch exercises all orderings periods.
USMC received two offers for the contract and obligated $1.6 million in fiscal 2017 operations and maintenance funds at the time of award.
