Air Force comm deal will support Enduring Freedom

As the Air Force sets up makeshift bases across the deserts of Southwest Asia, an IT company from Doylestown, Pa., has signed on to supply the service with communications support.

The Air Force has awarded a $98 million contract to Sytex Inc. to provide command and control support services to deployed forces in about six countries across Southwest Asia to support Operation Enduring Freedom. Sytex expects to send at least 100 employees to Air Force and other joint forces posts in Asia to assist with comm support, a Sytex official said.

Under the five-year, indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract announced today, Sytex will help run networks in government facilities across Southwest Asia. Employees also will help install tactical satellite systems.
