Reading time ( words)

CGI today announced the award of a US$34.3 million contract from the U.S. Department of the Navy's Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) for Undersea Warfare Systems Engineering and Technical Assistance.  The contract, with NAVSEA's Program Executive Office – Integrated Warfare Systems for Undersea Systems (PEO IWS 5), includes a base year, two option years and two award terms, and allows NAVSEA to achieve support continuity and retain the long-term technical expertise provided by CGI personnel.

"CGI is proud to support Naval Sea Systems Command and its critical mission to support the combat readiness of U.S. sailors and marines," said Tim Hurlebaus, President, CGI Federal.  "By leveraging our long-term engagements with Naval commands in both the air and sea domains, CGI has the expertise required to support combat technologies that help the Navy defend the U.S. and its allies around the world."

Charged with providing the U.S. Naval fleet with technically superior warfighting capabilities, the PEO IWS 5 has responsibility for the development and delivery of innovative solutions and technology life-cycle management across Navy vessels stationed worldwide.  The organization manages surface ship and submarine combat technologies and systems, and has coordinated the Navy Open Architecture across 275 ship platforms since its establishment in 2002.

Today's NAVSEA announcement follows CGI's recent selection as a technology provider for the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) Navy's $50.3M contract to provide IT support services for its ongoing data center modernization program.

"We are privileged to have a strong, ongoing partnership with the U.S. Navy," said Andy Jackson, Vice President, Navy programs. "We look forward to building on our existing Naval systems and technologies business and are committed to maintaining a level of support and innovation that have been the hallmarks of our engagement with federal defense and security customers."

My View from CES 2021: Day 1

01/12/2021 | Dan Feinberg, Technology Editor, I-Connect007
What a difference a year makes. One year ago, those of us who cover and attend CES were going from one press conference to the next; this year, we are at home going from link to link. Confusing and challenging, yes, but there are some advantages: no masks, only five steps to get to a restroom, being able to have three of four events or more displaying on your screens at the same time and being able to download press kits as needed. So far, many new devices are being introduced, but of course, they are all online, so you wonder if some of them really exist or are truly operational as yet.

CES 2021: Just How Different Will It Be?

01/11/2021 | Dan Feinberg, I-Connect007
CES 2021 starts today and this year there is no need for an overpriced hotel room in Vegas, no long lines to get a taxi or board a bus, and no crowded exhibit halls (one good thing this year). On the other hand, you must decide ahead of time what you want to see and make a reservation or appointment if you wish to have time and access assured.
