Serco Inc., a provider of professional, technology, and management services, announced on August 5 that it has been awarded a contract by the U.S. Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Command (SPAWAR) System Center Atlantic (SSC-LANT) division to provide support and maintenance on Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles.
This contract bolsters the company’s Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) services to the Department of Defense and has a one-year term with a $9 million value.
Serco will provide Field Support Representatives (FSRs) to install, integrate, repair and provide maintenance training on the C4I equipment and systems deployed within the MRAP Family of Vehicles (FoVS). MRAP vehicles are designed to protect U.S. warfighters from Improvised Explosive Device (IED) attacks and ambushes. The company will support the U.S. Army, Air Force and Marines with these efforts and be responsible for the sustainment of the MRAPs in Qatar, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates, and Afghanistan.
“Serco is honored to be awarded the opportunity to support this MRAP project,” said Dan Allen, Serco Inc.’s chairman and CEO. “We have an excellent C4ISR division and are proud to apply our expertise and skills to help the U.S. military with their defense technologies.”
This contract will extend Serco’s efforts centering on and enhancing communication systems of MRAP vehicles and ensuring maintenance and operations. The company will ensure the vehicles are Full Mission Capable and maintain Operationally Ready status.
Serco provides comprehensive C4ISR support for mission-critical communications and IT systems used by the military. As a key focus area for Serco, its C4ISR services cover the full technology life cycle from information architecture to installation and maintenance.
