Aviat Named Subcontractor for DHS TacCom Contract (8/6/12)
Aviat Networks was named as the microwave subcontractor on the AT&T Government Solutions' team to compete for orders to provide tactical communications equipment to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). DHS awarded the contract with potential of up to $3 billion in business during a five-year period of performance to 30 companies for commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) equipment, infrastructure and related services.
Under the contract for the DHS tactical communications (TacCom) program, Aviat Networks will provide DHS and other federal agencies with the capability to acquire microwave radio communications equipment, engineering, design, installation and maintenance services to meet mission-critical operations. The contract is for an indefinite delivery and indefinite quantity (IDIQ) of tactical communications equipment and services.
Other agencies such as the White House Communications Agency and the departments of Interior, Justice and State can also use the IDIQ to purchase equipment. IDIQs provide for an indefinite quantity of products/services for a fixed time and help streamline the contract process and speed service delivery.
Aviat Networks will supply AT&T Government Solutions with microwave radios that operate in all current National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA)-designated bands.
