KeyW wins SPAWAR prime contract

The KeyW Holding Corporation of Hanover, MD announced on January 9 that the U.S. Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic awarded the company a prime position on its indefinite-delivery/indefinite quantity contract to provide tagging, tracking and locating (TTL) electronic equipment and support services to support joint commands within the Department of Defense. The five-year contract, awarded to six companies through full and open competition, has a $182 million initial value.

Under the contract, KeyW will compete for task orders to acquire, field and perform logistics support for TTL equipment designed for ground, air and maritime tracking. The contract will also deliver niche engineering services, including modification and customization of equipment, to meet global missions.

“We look forward to continuing and expanding our relationship with the Navy,” said Kirk Herdman, KeyW’s executive vice president, Corporate Strategy and Business Development. “This is a great opportunity for KeyW to further support the Navy’s Intelligence, Reconnaissance and Surveillance (ISR) requirements by delivering quick-reaction custom hardware and next-generation software solutions to meet specific mission needs around the world.”
