Army connects with ITT in overseas communications deal

The Army has awarded a five-year, $681 million contract to ITT Industries Inc. to operate and maintain the service's communications and information systems in Asia and Africa.

ITT's systems division unit of Colorado Springs, Colo., will perform the work under the direction of the Army's Network Enterprise Technology Command's 160th Signal Brigade. The contract consists of one base year and four one-year options.

Through NETCOM, the company supports critical communications systems at 50 locations in six countries that have joined with the United States in the war against terrorism.

Headquartered in White Plains, N.Y., ITT supplies military defense systems and advanced technical and operational services to a wide range of government agencies.
