RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 4, 2018--NCI Information Systems, Inc. (NCI), a leading provider of advanced information technology solutions and professional services to U.S. federal government agencies, announced today it has been awarded a $22 million prime contract by the U.S. Army Program Executive Office for Enterprise Information Systems (PEO-EIS) to modernize Home Station Mission Command Centers (HSMCCs) at nine sites across the U.S. and internationally. The contract has a three-year base period of performance with eight optional tasks.

“Every day, the U.S. Army is planning, mobilizing support, and making strategic decisions critical to our national security and that of our allies,” said Paul A. Dillahay, NCI president and CEO. “It is imperative for our Army leaders to have the mission-critical IT solutions necessary to ensure military readiness and situational awareness to successfully defend against emerging threats.

The HSMCC enables uninterrupted mission command through a network comprised of intuitive, secured, standards-based capabilities adapted to commanders’ requirements that are integrated into a common operating environment. With the U.S. Army Installation Information Infrastructure Modernization Program (I3MP), commanders will have the ability to perform day-to-day strategic operations for planning, mobilization support, deployment, execution, and sustainment of U.S. and coalition forces, which are crucial to the safety and defense of the nation.
