Globecomm Systems, a global provider of communications solutions and services, has been awarded an eight-month managed services contract from a Government prime contractor valued at $7.3 million.

This deal, according to Globecomm includes two six-month options which if exercised would bring the total contract value at up to $14.5 million.

Globecomm will be responsible for providing engineering services, managed satellite and terrestrial communications connectivity, and life-cycle support services to the prime contractor.

The client in turn is in charge for the overall deployment of a communications network.

Commenting on the deal, Dwight Hunsicker, Globecomm’s vice president, Government Business Development, said: “Globecomm is looking forward to supporting our customer by leveraging Globecomm’s combined capabilities of satellite, wireless, and terrestrial communications know-how to help deliver a complex network to the end customer.”

Globecomm Systems (News - Alert) Inc., or Globecomm, is a global provider of satellite-based managed network solutions. Last year, in November, the company bagged a pre-engineered systems contract from a U.S. Government Agency valued at $3.3 million.

Under the terms set forth in the contract, Globecomm supplied multiple Summit and Auto-Explorer Pre-Engineered Terminals. The company expects this contract to be completed in the Company's fiscal year 2011 fourth quarter ending June 30, 2011.

“Our government clients continue to leverage Globecomm's Pre-Engineered System Products to satisfy their critical mission communication needs,” commented Mike Plourde, vice president of System Products, in a press release. “Our track record of delivering quality products and responsive after sales support are key differentiators that foster growth in our terminal business.”
