Comtech Receives JCAC Training Support Contract
Fred Kornberg, board chairman and CEO of Comtech, said the award will allow the company to continue providing cybersecurity training to Department of Defense warfighters and support the government’s cybersecurity mission.
The delivery orders are under a five-year, $125 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract renewal. The Melville, New York-based company received its first JCAC award under the IDIQ, worth $1.4 million, in October. The IDIQ has been funded $4.9 million to date, Comtech said.
The JCAC program allows military and civilian personnel to learn about cyber operations. Under the program, instructors will teach attendees the techniques to solve a given problem instead of highlighting specific systems. JCAC is designed so that even individuals with minimal experience in computers and advanced technologies will be able to learn cyber analytics within the six-month course duration. The training program is being offered by the U.S. Navy and various universities across the U.S.
Comtech offers next-generation 911 emergency systems and secure wireless communications solutions to government and commercial clients. The company has multiple offices across the U.S. and in other international locations, including the U.K., India and China.
