The U.S. Navy awarded a contract to Tapestry Solutions, a non-fully integrated subsidiary of The Boeing Company [NYSE: BA], to provide technical support and services to its Tactical Mobile (TacMobile) program. This program provides fixed-site and mobile command, control, communications, computers and intelligence capability, also known as C4I.
The five-year contract covers design and development, production, fielding, training, post-fielding maintenance and disposal of obsolete equipment. The initial funded amount is for $8.4 million with options that could bring its total to $76.2 million.
“This contract enables us to continue working with the U.S. Navy to effectively operate and support both current and future TacMobile solutions,” said Geoff Evans, general manager, Logistics Information Management Systems. “Our solution will permit naval commanders to direct and control sophisticated air missions, including sensitive data sharing between coalition forces.”
Work in support of the contract will be completed in Charleston, S.C., Patuxent River, Md. and Jacksonville, Fla.
The TacMobile ground elements support mission planning, data processing and analysis for the P-3C and P-8A aircraft in their anti-submarine warfare and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions.
