CS to Support FAA Crisis Communications Network
Reston, Va. — May 15, 2020 — Concept Solutions, LLC (CS) has been awarded the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Command and Control Communications (C3) Support contract, adding crisis management and continuity of operations support to its growing role in safeguarding the flying public.
The FAA’s Command and Control Communications Division, AXE-400, is tasked with providing secure, redundant and reliable communications between the Agency’s Washington, D.C., headquarters and its nationwide aeronautical facilities. Whenever a manmade or natural disaster disrupts the standard local, regional or national telecommunications infrastructures, C3’s products allow FAA leadership to directly manage and – if necessary, restore – the National Airspace System (NAS).
Concept Solutions will, under the terms of the C3 Support contract, provide system engineering, network engineering, communications security (COMSEC), intelligence, financial and other administrative support to AXE-400 for up to a five-year period of performance. It will also support and modernize the FAA’s Washington Operations Center Complex (WOCC) and several Regional Operations Centers (ROCs).
Chief among the computer systems Concept Solutions will maintain is the Emergency Operations Network (EON), which integrates web applications, Microsoft SharePoint and a Geospatial Information Systems (GIS) platform to provide a high-level overview, trend analysis and logging of incidents such as laser attacks, unmanned aircraft system (UAS) violations and disruptive passengers.
The Feb. 26 award strengthens Concept Solutions’ rapidly expanding range of technical support offerings to the U.S. Government. The company’s other recent wins include its mid-February admission into the U.S. General Services Administration’s One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services (OASIS) Small Business (SB) Pool 1 governmentwide acquisition contract, and its October 2019 selection as a prime contractor in the U.S. Air Force’s Kessel Run project.
“We are excited to bring the C3 program into our portfolio of mission-critical solutions that keep our country safe,” said Concept Solutions Executive VP & COO John Krahulec.
