Air National Guard taps Telos for wireless contract

The Air National Guard has awarded Telos Corp. a $5.9 million contract to deploy wireless network solutions as part of a secure wireless local-area network build out.

The work is part of an implementation of secure wireless local-area networks for 25 of the ANG's active wings and regional training centers.

Under the contract, Telos of Ashburn, Va., will engineer and install deployable wireless local area network systems for off-base operations in support of military and homeland security missions.

Telos also will install a scaled version of the approved wireless network solution at selected ANG sites.

The installation will feature an 802.11a/b/g compliant architecture for the wireless network and an intrusion detection protocol to guard against unauthorized access.
