iGov Wins USAF's $52.5M TACP-MCS Delivery Order

iGov, provider of C4ISR systems and support programs, announced today that the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC)  awarded them a $52,533,693 delivery order (0002) to previously awarded Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity, (IDIQ) contract FA8730-16-D-0007 to modify M1145 High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWVs). iGov will modify HMMWVs to provide Tactical Air Control Party users with embedded software and systems for critical voice, data, and video communications. The mobile communications system effort will allow Joint Terminal Attack Controllers (JTACs) to control Close Air Support (CAS) aircraft from the safety of an armored vehicle while coordinating and conducting joint CAS missions. Work will be performed at iGov's Tampa, Florida, facility and is expected to be complete by Jan. 28, 2021

"We have been leveraging COTS and GOTS products to build and sustain Tactical C4 Systems for SOCOM and the Marine Corps since 2004," says iGov President & COO Mike Tyrrell. "We are really excited and honored that we now get to work with the Air Force."


"The Air Force Battle Management Directorate made it pretty clear that they desired a mature solution," says Chuck Reiche, Vice President of Business Development. "We reviewed and worked with several large OEMs to ensure our ability to leverage the right products to meet the government's technical and business requirements. Our partnership with Harris Communication Systems was a critical element, as their radio and intercom products were absolutely the right components."
