ARINC Engineering Services, LLC announced today that it has been awarded a three-year contract to extend its Next Generation Wireless Communications (NGWC) solution for tracking and monitoring military assets. Under the three-year, $12.4 million IDIQ contract, ARINC will continue its development, testing and certification of the wireless mesh network protocol and sensor applications initiated under a previous contract.
Following functional requirements and technical specifications provided by the federal government, ARINC, together with Cubic Global Tracking Solutions (CGTS) and Lunarline Inc., will close the gaps in the supply/distribution enterprise, resulting in continuous, near-real-time global in-transit visibility and total asset visibility. The final NGWC mesh protocol that results from this contract will support sensor applications that will enable the U.S. Army's vision for a Common Logistics Operating Environment.
"ARINC is committed to helping the U.S. Army Logistics Innovation Agency achieve its goal of creating an enterprise-wide asset tracking and monitoring solution. We look forward to applying our outstanding technical leadership and project management to this contract to ensure a successful outcome for the federal government," said Monty Montero, Vice President, ARINC Defense Systems Engineering and Support.
