Army Taps LGS Innovations to Help Modernize Pacific Data Network
The U.S. Army has awarded a five-year, $81.5 million contract to Herndon, Virginia-based LGS Innovations. Under the contract, LGS will support the Army's Program Executive Officer Enterprise Information Systems (PEO EIS) Power Projection Enablers (P2E) team at Fort Belvoir, Virginia. LGS will assist the P2E in data network modernization as part of the Pacific Data Project. The data project seeks to create a single, secure standards-based network across 100 sites in the Asia Pacific Theater. Also, the effort will reduce the number of entry and exit points to enhance network security.
“This is an exciting project for the U.S. Army, and LGS is proud to be a part of it,” said Kevin Kelly, CEO of LGS Innovations. “Network security and efficiency is key to mission success, and the NETMOD program will help standardize Army networks across the Pacific theater with the Defense Information Systems Network protocols, allowing the Army to move further down the path to achieving the Joint Information Environment.”
