Motorola Solutions awarded US$23.8m Navy contract

The US Department of Defense has handed Motorola Solutions a US$23.8 million contract to sustain the US Navy’s LMR system, which is used by the first responder community at Navy bases across the globe.

The contract includes four options, which, if taken up, would raise the total contract value to US$93.6 million.

The US Navy’s LMR network enables its emergency services staff to liaise with federal, state and local public safety agencies.

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
  • benchmark testing.
     

The main contract is expected to be completed by December 2020. If all the options are exercised, the completion date will be June 2023.
