Engility Awarded $18.9 M to Support US Army's Natick Soldier RD&E Center

Engility Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: EGL), today announced that it has been awarded two contracts totaling $18.9 million by the U.S. Army’s Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Center (NSRDEC). These two 18-month contracts will support the efforts of the U.S. Marine Corps' Communications Electronic Equipment Maintenance Complex (CEEMC) to procure, fabricate and integrate internal appointment modules (IAMS) for use wherever and whenever our Marines are deployed.

The NSRDEC is a research and development laboratory charged with maximizing our soldiers’ survivability, sustainability, mobility, combat effectiveness and field quality of life. Successful pursuit of these objectives requires extensive testing and evaluation capabilities.

Under these single-award fixed price contracts, Engility will provide our integration expertise along with hardware integration kits to support the U.S. Marine Corps' requirements for Integration Technology (IT) communication interface hubs that enable high speed data distribution and interface connectivity between communication electronics maintenance (CEM) systems, worldwide IT Infrastructure and network data links. The IAMS are specifically designed to provide access to state-of-the-art IT and communications protocols and to provide “plug-and-play” capability maintenance to Marine units in the field. As IAMS are deployed, our customers require these facilities to be equipped with high-technology communications equipment to ensure our troops have the most secure and reliable information available.

“These new wins highlight our ability to provide our Armed Forces with a wide range of specialized Information Technology Modernization and Sustainment services and mission expertise to ensure they have a competitive advantage in the field. We are very honored to be able to serve our brave men and women of the U.S. Army and Marine Corps, and we are extremely committed to ensuring their success and delivering our services in the most efficient and cost effective manner,” said Engility President and CEO Tony Smeraglinolo.
