Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII) announced on Sept. 5 that its Technical Solutions division is one of 16 companies awarded a contract by the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) to provide a wide range of analytic and operational support services.
The multi-award contract has a base period of five years and a potential value of $17 billion.
“Critical readiness of our defense intelligence enterprise demands unique expertise and advanced technology solutions,” said Garry Schwartz, president of Technical Solutions’ Mission Driven Innovative Solutions group. “For more than 20 years, we have partnered with DIA to maintain global situational awareness of threats to our nation, and we look forward to continuing to support this vital mission.”
In addition to the DIA, HII currently supports the intelligence requirements of the Joint Improvised-Threat Defeat Organization (JIDO), U.S. Forces Korea (USFK), U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM), U.S. Air Forces-Europe (USAFE), U.S. European Command (USEUCOM), U.S. Central Command (USCENTCOM) and the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command (USINDOPACOM). HII provides contractor-owned, contractor-operated manned and unmanned airborne intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance to the Department of Defense.
The contract was directly awarded to Fulcrum IT Services, LLC, a company acquired by HII on Feb. 25, 2019.
