The U.S. Army has awarded PAR Government Systems Corp. (PGSC), a provider of communications services and technology products, a contract worth up to $48 million for advanced full motion video (FMV), geospatial information systems (GIS) and intelligence surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) software and hardware technologies.

The Army Contracting Command/Aberdeen Proving Ground (ACC/APG) Natick Contracting Division awarded PGSC the indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract, which has a five-year period of performance, according to the company.

The IDIQ contract supports rapid response capability for the FMV, GIS and ISR technologies required in forward theaters of operation for both U.S. military and coalition warfighters. PAR Government has been working with the Natick Contracting Division and the U.S. Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AF LCMC), Battle Management Directorate, Force Protection Division to streamline the transition of near-ready, ready and working technologies to the warfighter.

“Emerging and mature FMV, GIS and ISR related technologies will play an important role in achieving and maintaining information dominance,” said Steve Lynch, PGSC’s president. “This dominance will be accomplished by technology generation, integration and the rapid fielding of computer-based solutions and equipment,” he said, adding, “We look forward to providing research, development, operational support, deployment and training necessary to transition FMV, GIS and ISR capabilities to the warfighter.”
