Contractor: Northrop Grumman Mission Systems
Northrop Grumman Mission Systems, Reston, Va., is being awarded a $29,354,004 modification under a previously awarded contract (M67854-06-C-2023) in support of Joint Tactical Common Operational Picture (COP) Workstation (JTCW) Client and Gateway (C&GW) is the software re-architecting of Command and Control Personal Computer (C2PC), a Microsoft Windows-based software tool developed for the Marine Corps by Inter-National Research Institute Inc., in 1994 [now Northrop Grumman Defense Mission Systems (NGDMS)]. It was initially designed to fulfill the role of a COP client to Tactical Combat Operations (TCO). It quickly became the client software of choice for Global Command and Control System (GCCS) and other Common Operating Environment (COE) systems to better ensure that all users share a common view of the battlespace. C2PC has evolved to satisfy tactical system requirements in other programs such as Data-Automated Computer Terminal (DACT) by being able to operate in a low-bandwidth, intermittent communications environment. The JTCW C&GW is the naming convention chosen for the re-architected C2PC C&GW. The name change was necessary to maintain consistent naming convention with the Marine Corps' end product, in which the C&GW will be a core component. This is not a first-time procurement; it is a follow-on procurement to C2PC Version 6.2 and C2PC Version 7.0. Work will be performed in San Diego, Calif., and work is expected to be completed by Sep. 2009. Contract funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year. The Marine Corps Systems Command, Quantico, Va., is the contracting activity.
Total Contract Value: $29,354,004
