Staff Report
Published Dec. 17, 2012

Four Lowcountry companies received an $18.6 million multiple-award contract for electronics and communications services, the Department of Defense announced.

Altron, Ishpi Information Technologies, Sparc, Gov Solutions Group and nine other companies will compete for task orders associated with the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic contract.

The contract calls for electronics and communications services associated with command, control, communications, computers, combat systems, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, also known as C5ISR. The base year’s value is $18.6 million, but the contract includes options that could increase the value to nearly $99 million.

The contractors will perform the work in Charleston, and they expect to finish by December 2013, unless SPAWAR exercises its options, which could push the work to December 2017.
