Awarded from the NETCENTS contract vehicle, Telos will assist the PTC with integrating, operating and maintaining a single, integrated Defense Message System at three security levels. The PTC is the Army's nerve center in the Pentagon for operating and managing the critical IT infrastructure related to messaging.

Under the contract, Telos will operate and maintain the DMS, providing 24x7x365 customer service support for facilities in the National Capitol region and beyond. The scope of the work includes all functions, services and tasks associated with the management and operation of DMS at the PTC. These services support the PTC for all command and control messaging systems and associated infrastructure and interfaces located in the Pentagon and alternate locations.

"The single, integrated DMS securely sends and tracks official communications for command and control electronic messaging, transmits messages from one organization to another, provides orders or direction to the receiving organization, and transmits officially recognized intelligence information," said Frank Whitehead, senior vice president and general manager, Telos Secure Solutions Division. "We are pleased to continue to ensure secure and reliable messaging in support of the Pentagon Telecommunications Center's operations."

Telos has provided support to PTC for the last six years. Telos' partners for the base year services in this contract include Data Systems Analysts, Inc. (DSA), ICE Communications, and Web Business Solutions. The contract also includes some optional tasking, which Telos has teamed with Northrop Grumman, Technique Solutions, and UHD to provide.

Telos serves as a prime contractor on the five-year, $9 billion Network Centric Solutions (NETCENTS) contract vehicle. NETCENTS is an indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract that provides the Air Force, the Department of Defense and other federal agencies with a single vehicle through which to buy network-centric information technologies, networking equipment, and services, as well as voice, video and data communications hardware and software and telephony solutions from preferred contractors. NETCENTS provides a proven competitive edge for the federal government by reducing the time-to-market for critical networking and communications equipment and services.
