Trace Systems has won a five-year, $181.6 million contract from the Defense Information Systems Agency to provide communications equipment certified by Iridium (Nasdaq: IRDM) and 24/7 help desk support to customers of DISA’s Enhanced Mobile Satellite Services program.
The agency offers EMSS to the Department of Defense, other federal agencies, state and local governments and foreign partners, DOD said Tuesday.
EMSS functions as a satellite-based personal communications system for authorized users to receive voice and data communications via a commercially built gateway that connects to the Defense Information Systems Network.
The Defense Information Technology Contracting Organization received three proposals for the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract through a solicitation on SAM.gov and the agency will use fiscal 2022 defense working capital funds to cover the $2,000 guaranteed minimum value of the award.
Work is set to take place at Trace Systems’ Tampa, Florida-based integration facility and would extend through Feb. 14, 2027, if all options are exercised.
