SOSi to Expand USINDOPACOM’s Coalition Communications Capability
SOS International has been awarded a five-year task order to modernize the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command’s joint information-sharing capabilities.
The $43 million task order was awarded under the Mission Partner Environment contract managed by the Secretary of the Air Force Administrative Assistant Mission Partner Capabilities Office, SOSi said.
“The scope of the MPE program is rapidly expanding to incorporate operation, maintenance, sustainment, and security of DOD’s largest legacy coalition information sharing networks,” said SOSi President and CEO Julian Setian, a two-time Wash100 winner.
MPE’s systems and networks provide command and control capabilities to the Department of Defense’s combatant commands and military services.
The environment also facilitates the transfer of mission-critical information to and from the United States and its coalition allies.
The capability process allows the U.S. military services to synchronize data with their sensors, battle networks and information-sharing systems.
Josh Zloba, vice president of information technology solutions at SOSi, said more than two dozen nations in the Pacific theater rely on MPE to communicate with U.S. warfighters.
SOSi said the new task order expands the MPE work already being performed for USINDOPACOM, the Pacific Air Forces, U.S. Army Pacific, Marine Forces Pacific, Pacific Fleet and Special Operations Command Pacific.
Headquartered in Reston, Virginia, SOSi is a government services integrator specializing in the defense and intelligence sectors.
The company recently won a spot on the Defense Intelligence Agency’s potential $12.6 billion contract vehicle for mission-critical IT and technical support services.
DIA’s Solutions for IT Enterprise III contract vehicle is a 10-year indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity deal that also supports the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency.
