The Naval Information Warfare Center (NIWC) Pacific has awarded a one-year, $8.3 million task order to Serco Inc. to provide upgrades to Giant Voice Mass Notification Systems, a voice announcing system to warn the local community at and near naval installations of impending danger due to an emergency, in multiple locations across the Western Pacific Region.

Serco will also provide production and installation services, which includes: pre-installation testing and check-out, retrofit installation, inspection, pre-setup, optimization, training, and systems operational verification testing, the company said Friday.

“Serco has a 20-plus year legacy of rapidly providing highly reliable support to meet the emerging requirements of the Navy,” said Dave Dacquino, Serco’s Chairman and CEO.  “Serco is proud of the base modernization services we are providing to help secure our bases, and detect and respond to threats.”

This task order was awarded under Serco’s $232 million Anti-Terrorism/Force Protection (ATFP) Naval Electronic Surveillance Systems (NESS) Indefinite-Delivery/Indefinite-Quantity (ID/IQ) contract.

As the sole winner of the contract, Serco supports NIWC Pacific delivering technical services to the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC), program executive offices, other DoD agencies, the Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Marine Corps and other government programs.
