Lockheed Martin will continue to provide enhanced communications reliability, survivability, information capabilities, and user support within the National Capital Region on behalf of the Air Force District of Washington under a new, approximately $320 million, contract.

Under the new one-year base, nine options award, Lockheed Martin will run the Network Command Center, supporting the Air Force's National Capital Region IT communications network used by all Air Force personnel in the Washington, DC region - including the Pentagon, Joint Base Andrews, and Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling. Services will include desktop support, enterprise applications, plans, projects and engineering services, and National Military Command Center (NMCC) support.

"We've made tremendous strides during our time on this program. From significantly reducing helpdesk call times for our customers, to consolidating the Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling and Joint Base Andrews networks," said Angela Heise, vice president of Enterprise IT Solutions for Lockheed Martin Information Systems and Global Solutions.

"Doing more with less is an ultimate goal of affordability, and while we've made significant progress over the past nine years, our employees will continue to create the next wave of IT innovations to drive cost down and efficiency up."

In addition to the site consolidations, Lockheed Martin also created the Shared Computing Environment (SCE) - a migration of enterprise platforms across a unified infrastructure of storage, computers, networks, and virtualization environment - establishing a virtual computing space. The SCE project strives towards the vision of the Air Force's 844th Communications Group - "Centralized - Optimized - Delivering Excellence" (CODE).

The new SCE provides the next generation virtual server environment that will enable consolidation of hundreds of network servers currently operating at numerous locations across the National Capital Region. Data Center Consolidation is a major Department of Defense initiative to maximize resources, increase workload efficiency and reduce operating costs.
