LGS Innovations has won a contract worth at least $49 million to help update a U.S. Army communications facility intended to be the branch’s central information systems hub in Southwest Asia.
The Herndon, Va.-based subsidiary of Alcatel-Lucent facility will act as the exclusive contractor for engineering, installing and testing the Army’s network and voice infrastructure, LGS said Wednesday.
Kevin Kelly, LGS CEO, said the company will update the infrastructure for warfighters with the goal of helping the federal government provide homeland security.
The facility will have 9,000 square feet of equipment room space for multiplexing and de-multiplexing circuits transported over copper, fiber, satellite or terrestrial line-of-sight radios.
Previously, LGS has worked on transmission circuit cutover projects and installed a virtualized infrastructure to migrate servers and their applications from existing facilities to the new facility.
