Parvus to Support SAIC in Task Orders for Communications Devices and Systems
SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, 16 April 2013 -- Parvus Corporation, a Cisco Systems Solution Technology Integration (STI) partner, announces it has signed a teaming agreement with SAIC (NYSE: SAI), to support task orders under the Global Tactical Advanced Communications Systems (GTACS) program. SAIC is one of 20 companies chosen by the U.S. Army to compete for task orders under the multiple award, indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) GTACS contract to supply the Army's Program Executive Office for Command, Communications and Control-Tactical (PEO C3T) with communications devices and systems.
"We are excited by the opportunity to support SAIC to meet the Army's needs under the GTACS contract," said Parvus President Dusty Kramer. "Demanding mission requirements call for low-power, high-performance systems designed to withstand front line conditions; just the kind of capability we bring to the SAIC team."
The initial task orders are expected in 2013 and will continue over a five-year period. When appropriate, SAIC will look to Parvus for products and services as part of their proposed solutions.
Parvus Corporation is a leading supplier of rugged COTS computing and IP networking subsystems for Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP) constrained military, aerospace, and homeland defense applications. Parvus' tactical mission processors, network routers, Ethernet switches and embedded board-level products provide highly reliable command, control, computing and communication (C4) capabilities for situational awareness and mobile data processing in airborne, ground vehicle, and naval installations.
