iGov to Build Tactical Data Distribution Platform for Marines Under $174M Contract

The U.S. Marine Corps has awarded iGov a potential five-year, $174M contract to develop a small form factor technology for combat data network users to send and receive information.

Reston, Va.-based iGov said Monday it will replace the military service’s CDN Data Distribution System-Modular under the firm-fixed-price contract, the company said Monday.

Marines use the DDS-M platform to transmit emails, share files, store data, authenticate users and equipment, manage information assurance functions and conduct internet protocol video teleconference.

An employee-owned company, iGov acts as a systems integrator and value added reseller of command, control, communications and computer systems to government clients.
