MCLEAN, Va., July 11, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HII (NYSE: HII) announced today that its Mission Technologies division was awarded an $84 million contract to continue supporting the National Geospatial Agency’s (NGA) IT enterprise cloud migration.
The recompeted contract was awarded under the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center’s (DoDIAC) multiple-award contract (MAC) vehicle by the U.S. Air Force's 774th Enterprise Sourcing Squadron. It has a term of five years.
“We are pleased to continue building our partnership with the NGA,” said Grant Hagen, president of Mission Technologies’ Cyber, Electronic Warfare and Space business group. “We look forward to applying our expertise, tools and processes to optimize NGA’s hybrid cloud strategy and to help enable users around the world to access timely mission-critical data.”
Most of the work on the contract will be performed in Springfield, Virginia, by an HII-led team comprised of four subcontractors: AgileBeat Inc., Ampsight Inc., Compass Inc. and GIT-G LLC that will perform research, development, test and evaluation analytical services as part of the NGA Cloud Program Management Office.

The team’s efforts will enable the NGA to migrate missions to a multi-cloud environment where the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) and federal agencies will be able to readily access the data needed for analysis and informed decision-making in support of national security priorities.
Under the previous contract, HII, with its partner AMPSight Inc., supported NGA’s successful adoption and operation of Commercial Cloud Services and created NGA’s hybrid cloud strategy, which in 2021 was recognized by Gartner Inc. as “Best of the Intelligence Community.”
