General Dynamics‘ (NYSE: GD) mission systems business has received a potential six-year, $144 million contract to help the U.S. Air Force expand, operate and maintain the network environment infrastructure of a military information system.

The Defense Department said Friday GDMS will support the global U.S. Battlefield Information Collection and Exploitation System Extended program under the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract.

BICES-X consists of software, hardware and integrated processes designed to help U.S. and foreign allies collaborate at the national and tactical levels through intelligence data exchange.

The Air Force will obligate $23.7 million in fiscal 2018 operations and maintenance funds on the sole-source contract’s first two task orders.

Work will occur at various locations worldwide through March 31, 2024.

General Dynamics’ information technology business was awarded a $188 million contract in August 2015 to provide enterprise IT support services for BICES-X.
