MCLEAN, Va., Feb. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- iGov, prime contractor for TACLAN and provider of evolutionary tactical network systems and support programs, announced today that it was awarded a firm-fixed-price modification to the Tactical Collaborative Work Suite (TCWS) contract by the United States Marine Corps (USMC). A previous contract worth $25M for similar work was awarded to iGov in June 2010. The modification, worth a maximum value of $12,265,866, is for the production of an additional 60 TCWS systems.
The primary purpose of the contract modification is to begin full-rate production of the TCWS 2.0 hardware platforms. The Tactical Collaborative Work Suite is a man-portable tactical collaborative system comprised of a virtualized hosting platform, segmented physical hardware and virtualized software platforms that provide portal, synchronous, and asynchronous collaboration capabilities to support Marine Air Ground Task Force (MAGTF) Operations. The initial contract called for iGov to design, develop, build, test, and deliver two Low Rate Initial Production (LRIP) Systems.
iGov's ability to quickly design, test and produce reliable, modular virtual hosting platforms that support information sharing services and applications, has resulted in a smaller, lighter weight, ruggedized, modular and scalable standardized capability set that allows for Marines to deploy, manage, and maintain tactical and collaborative services.
"iGov's focus on providing innovative solutions that produce tangible and measurable benefits makes it easier for our customers to manage their system processes and ultimately meet their mission objectives," said Patrick Neven, Chairman and CEO of iGov. "Our goal is to continue to support the USMC in Expeditionary and Maneuver Warfare by providing systems that increase collaboration, information sharing and performance capabilities."
