U.S. Navy extends critical comms contract with Motorola

The U.S. Department of Defense has exercised a contract option valued at US$29 million with Motorola Solutions, which will extend the operations and maintenance of the U.S. Navy’s land mobile radio (LMR) system.

This is the third year of a multiyear agreement for essential radio communications that the Navy relies on to coordinate deployments and response actions at bases worldwide. The LMR network also enables secure collaboration between Navy emergency services and other federal, state and local agencies involved in public safety.

Under the contract with the Naval Facilities Engineering Command Anti-Terrorism/Force Protection Ashore Program, Motorola Solutions will provide preventive maintenance of hardware and software, technology and software upgrades, equipment repair and replacement, management of software licences and currency, asset and configuration management, password management and vulnerability scanning and benchmark testing.
