Trace Systems Inc. (“Trace”), today announced that it has been awarded a prime position on the US Army’s five-year, $10 billion dollar Global Tactical Advanced Communications Systems (GTACS) contract. This Indefinite Delivery / Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract will support the current and future missions of the Program Executive Office – Command, Control and Communications – Tactical (PEO-C3T), the current customers of the expiring Worldwide Satellite Systems (WWSS) contract as well as other government customers worldwide.

Trace was selected as a prime contractor on both the full and open unrestricted as well as on the small business reserve award GTACS contracts, which will enable Trace and its team of industry partners to provide a wide range of tactical command, control and communications system hardware, software, engineering services, development, production, sustainment, test and related support services globally.

“We support the communications and information systems requirements of US Government customers around the world, and we are proud to expand our offering through the new GTACS contract,” said Otto Hoernig, III, Trace’s CEO. “We look forward to developing, fielding and sustaining fully integrated communications systems and to providing the support services that our Army and other tactically oriented customers require.”
