Raytheon named NMCI subcontractor

OCT. 13—Electronic Data Systems Corp. has selected Raytheon Co. to provide information security for the $6.9 billion Navy-Marine Corps Intranet under a subcontract worth $250 million over five years. A three-year option would add
up to $150 million to the deal, Raytheon officials announced.

The EDS team, known as the Information Strike Force, last week won the long-awaited contract to build, maintain and run the communications network [see story at www.gcn.com/vol1_no1/daily-updates/3077-1.html].

Raytheon's Secure Networks business, based in St. Petersburg, Fla., will design, implement and manage the security aspects of NMCI's network of approximately 360,000 users at 300 Navy and Marine Corps bases in the continental United States, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam, Iceland and Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, the company announced.

NMCI will replace multiple shore-based command data networks in the Navy and Marine Corps [see story at www.gcn.com/vol1_no1/daily-updates/3081-1.html].

The NMCI subcontract will add 50 Raytheon jobs for information technology specialists in the Tampa, Fla., area and another 50 in the Washington, D.C., area, officials said.
