Jupiter, FL (Oct, 2017) The U.S. Army‘s Program Executive Office for Enterprise Information Systems has awarded a $22.7 million contract in Sept 2016 to NextiraOne Federal, LLC d/b/a Black Box Network Services (“Black Box”) in support of the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative – Information Technology which demonstrates a joint effort between the U.S. and its allies through the U.S. Army’s Foreign Military Sales (“FMS”) program.
The project will establish a joint cybersecurity, command and control, logistical and medical information systems capacity for Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense (“MOD”) and General Staff. Black Box will lead the engineering, furnishing, installation, integration and testing services. AGIS, Inc. is subcontracted to provide its LifeRing software as the Ukraine MOD’s Joint Command Level Command and Control platform. In addition to Command and Control functionality on the displays, LifeRing will also provide the most recently updated logistics and medical information from other Black Box provided systems. The AGIS subcontract is valued at $3.3 million.
“We are excited to partner with AGIS and to be providing their LifeRing system as an integral component of our overall solution for this mission critical U-MOD project,” said Jeff Murray, Black Box Vice President of Government Solutions. “The capabilities to be provided from this Command and Control system will greatly improve Ukraine’s ability to defend itself against aggression.”
