Air Force sets to work on combat intranet upgrade

The Air Force plans to redesign major components of its Combat Information Transport System intranet.

The service has awarded General Dynamics Corp. a nine-month, $5 million contract to reconfigure both the unclassified and classified operations of the network by creating a common infrastructure. The project will also include an upgrade of the intranet's information assurance program.

The redesign will improve the Air Force's network security and consolidate staffs that now manage combat network operations and information assurance at the service's network operations and security centers, the company said in a statement.

General Dynamics' network systems unit in Needham, Mass., will do the intranet work.
