WASHINGTON, March 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Secure Mission Solutions is pleased to announce that its subsidiary, Sim-G Technologies, LLC is one of five vendors selected as part of the U.S. Army Engineering and Support Center, Huntsville's Electronic Security Systems (ESS-V) contract with a shared capacity of $650 million and a three year base period of performance with two one-year options.
"It's only been a year since Sim-G was acquired by SMS. Winning ESS-V is a huge accomplishment as it was our first large business pursuit since graduating from our 8(a) small business status in January 2010. We are elated that our first competitive effort as a large business was a success. This is truly a big win for us," said Paul McCaskill, Sim-G's ESS-V Program Manager (PM).
The Electronic Security Systems contract is multi-faceted and will provide the Huntsville Center, a unit of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and their government customers with a wide range of intrusion detection, closed-circuit television, access-control, command and control, utility monitoring and control, fire and life safety, HVAC, and SCADA systems on a global scale. Contractors will be required to provide a wide range of services including surveys, installation planning, procurement, installation, testing, training and lifecycle support for systems provided.
Supporting the Huntsville Center and Corps of Engineers for the past six years on other projects, Sim-G is excited about and dedicated to the agencies' mission. Sim-G's team of industry leaders includes another SMS company, WareOnEarth Communications Inc. (WCI), which provides a full range of systems engineering and information assurance capabilities.
With offices in Huntsville, Ala., Washington, D.C., Reston, Va., Omaha, Neb., and Charleston, S.C., Sim-G expects to be on the forefront of task order competition on this indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract with the ability to win up to $390 million in contract ceiling.
"Sim-G and Secure Mission Solutions have a common focus on enabling our customers to assure mission performance, so this win is especially important to us," said Phil Lacombe, President of SMS and CEO of Sim-G Technologies. "ESS-V provides an attractive security-focused contract for delivering the level of security required throughout the federal government in the current threat environment. All of us at SMS, Sim-G and WCI are excited about this new opportunity to join current and new customers in securing the infrastructure on which we depend every day."
Sim-G was acquired by SMS in December 2009. SMS is an integrated security Solutions Company focused on enterprise mission assurance and is comprised of two market-leading operations, Sim-G Technologies, LLC and WareOnEarth Communications, Inc.
