Raytheon to build US SOA-based C2


Raytheon has been awarded an indefinite delivery-indefinite quantity award to upgrade the US Army Battle Command System (ABCS) to a netcentric service-oriented architecture.

The Battle Command Development contract, managed by the US Army Communications and Electronics Command, is a five-year, multi-award vehicle worth up to $777.4 million.

The ABCS consists of products that have been developed by battle command organisations. Now in use, they lack commonality.
“The task orders focus on unifying the existing ABCS products into a net-centric, service-oriented architecture,” Raytheon says. “This allows the ABCS a common look and feel within its family of products and improved interoperability with other Army systems.”
