In three orders valued at a total of $1.9 million, the Army will buy the tactical extension of Xacta Corp.'s Automated Message Handling System to enable soldiers to use the service's secure messaging capability in the field.
The Army uses the company's Xacta Tactical Messaging Capability to send and receive Web-based messages within and outside of theaters of operations as part of the service's Tactical Messaging System. Under the new contracts, the Army will deploy Xacta software to tactical organizations already using the Tactical Messaging System.
The software provides a uniform interface for creating and reading messages either on base or in the field, which enables centralized management and simplifies training procedures.
