Army picks Iraq communications contractors

General Dynamics Corp. has been awarded a subcontract worth an estimated $3.6 million to install the infrastructure for a voice, video and data network at Camp Victory in Baghdad, Iraq. The project is expected to expand to include other military installations in the Baghdad area.

The network is part of the Army's Kuwait Iraq C4 Commercialization program, to provide strategic communications at U.S. military bases within Iraq and throughout Southwest Asia. Computer Sciences Corp., a prime contractor for the Army's Communications and Electronics Command Rapid Response contract, chose General Dynamics to provide inside-plant, data and voice infrastructure solutions for KICC.

General Dynamics Network Systems recently completed similar infrastructure work in Kuwait and is upgrading voice switches and installing data networks throughout South Korea, as well as expanding and upgrading the communications voice network at Fort Gordon in Augusta, Ga. The company has already begun work on the Baghdad project, a company spokeswoman said.
