US Navy selects Black Box for voice systems sustainment and upgrade

Black Box Corporation of Pittsburgh, PA announced on February 9 that it has been awarded a $15 million contract from the US Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP) for consolidated area telephone systems support in the greater San Diego, CA area.  Black Box will provide commercial support services to sustain, maintain, and modernize Navy telephone systems and support to improve Naval communications capabilities in the region.

The contract represents an ongoing effort by the Navy to improve command and control, communications, computing, and intelligence (C4I) capability sets at Naval bases globally.  Black Box selection will provide the Navy with improved capabilities in direct support of the legacy systems while enabling them to modernize across myriad platforms at a sustained, and controlled pace with a partner that offers significant systems support and integration capabilities across all DoD approved voice and UC platforms.

“We are honored to have been selected and pleased to expand our ongoing work with the Navy to now include sustainment and transformation support of their voice platforms and services in the greater San Diego area,” said Jeff Murray, vice president, government solutions at Black Box.  “Black Box experience with the Navy includes the afloat fleet, middle east, Asia Pacific, East coast and now West coast of the US across many diverse communication and security platforms.  Our job is to assure that our communications and security systems and services support the mission of the US Navy worldwide.”
