General Dynamics' (NYSE: GD) information technology business has received a potential $118M task order to provide information technology and cybersecurity support across the U.S. Army's Department of Defense Information Network.

The company said Thursday it will perform DoDIN-A mission services for Army Cyber Command, Network Enterprise Technology Command and Chief Information Officer/G-6 as part of the Cybersecurity and Network Operations Mission Support contract.

GDIT will monitor networks, surveil sensor grids, manage release and capability, classify incidents and ensure security compliance via the task order awarded under the General Services Administration's Alliant 2 vehicle.

Leigh Palmer, senior vice president for the defense division at GDIT, said the award reflects the unit's ability to provide workers and resources to Fort Huachuca in Sierra Vista, Ariz.

The single-award task order has a five-month base period, four option years and an additional six-month extension.
