Szanca awarded U.S. Army Battle Command Development (BCD) Contract as part of the Raytheon Team.

Szanca Solutions, Inc. was notified of their selection to provide services under the United States Army BCD contract as part of the Raytheon Team. The Battle Command Development contract, managed by the U.S. Army Communications and Electronics Command, is a five-year, indefinite delivery-indefinite quantity, multi-award vehicle worth up to $777.4 million.

The award enables the Raytheon team to compete for task orders that will enhance and maintain the capabilities of the Army Battle Command System. The ABCS consists of products that have been developed by battle command organizations. These products are used throughout the theater and lack commonality.

The task orders focus on unifying the existing ABCS products into a net-centric, service-oriented architecture. This allows the ABCS a common look and feel within its family of products and improved interoperability with other Army systems.

“The use of battle command products in current conflicts and in future Army modernization efforts is critical, making this effort particularly important,” said Andy Zogg, vice president, Raytheon Network Centric Systems Command and Control Systems. “Our aim is to put real solutions in the hands of our soldiers quickly.”
