Raytheon has received a contract to provide Command and Control Switching System (CCSS) depot-level logistics support to Ogden Air Logistics Centre at Hill Air Force Base, Utah.

The indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract has a $428 million ceiling and includes an initial two-year period, three additional two- year options and one 27-month option.

CCSS is a digital telecommunication system that provides secure voice and data service to customers including the National Command Authority, the National Military Command Centre, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, commanders-in-chief of combatant commands and other leaders within the US military. It is, according to Raytheon, the country’s premier military voice command and control communication system.

The CCSS contract covers depot-level repair, technical support, technology insertions, system analysis, upgrades, spare parts and training.

As funds are obligated, individual delivery orders-up to the $428 million ceiling-will be issued. An initial delivery order for $9 million has been issued to provide level of effort support during the first year of the contract.
