ECS secures prime spot on CENTCOM contract

Fairfax, VA-based ECS announced on September 9 that it has been awarded a five-year, $36.7 million contract by the United States Central Command (CENTCOM). Through this firm fixed-priced, prime contract, ECS will support CENTCOM’s Operations Directorate Command and Control Division (CCJ3/C) as they execute military operations critical to regional security and the country’s enduring interests.

ECS will provide CENTCOM with the personnel, supervision, and services necessary to support critical missions and operations. ECS subject matter experts will perform classified and unclassified work in areas of command and control (C2), information sharing collaboration and innovation (ISCI), information management (IM), knowledge management (KM), as well as coalition interoperability and security cooperation. ECS experts will also provide support for missile defense and unmanned aircraft systems and applications.

“CENTCOM leads vital missions in dynamic and challenging environments,” said Marshall Thames, senior vice president of mission solutions at ECS. “We look forward to working with them and the component commands as they execute missions critical to global security.”

“The new CENTCOM contract is a continuation of our longtime partnership with the Department of Defense (DoD),” said John Heneghan, chief operating officer at ECS. “Our experience will help us deliver crucial mission solutions that strengthen the security posture of CENTCOM’s forces as well as those of our coalition partners.”
