Air Force awards communications deals

The Air Force has awarded General Dynamics Information Technology two contracts totaling $26 million to supply integrated, high-bandwidth communications at two bases in California.

For the projects, the company will design and install more than 1.1 million feet of fiber-optic cabling and basewide Ethernet over synchronous, optical network solutions. It also will provide operations and maintenance training.

General Dynamics IT will furnish IT solutions to process classified and unclassified voice, data, video, images and sensor requirements for the 940th Air Refueling Wing at Beale Air Force Base and the Air Force Flight Test Center at Edwards Air Force Base.

The company also will design and install a metropolitan area network at Beale to support base users in about 143 buildings. It will render similar support to users in 518 facilities at Edwards.

The projects were awarded under the Netcents Combat Information Transport Site Survey, Engineering Integration and Installation contract.
