Anteon International Corporation has been awarded a five-year Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA), with an estimated value of $20 million to support the U.S. Coast Guard Integrated Deepwater System Program. Under this tasking, Anteon will provide systems engineering, life-cycle management and program acquisition support services. These services will aid the Coast Guard during the development and fielding of three classes of new cutters and their associated boats, a new fixed-wing manned aircraft fleet, a combination of new and upgraded helicopters, and unmanned air vehicles. The Deepwater Program provides a complete revitalization of all the deepwater assets within the Coast Guard's inventory. This program introduces new and emerging technologies that are combined with innovative operational concepts to greatly improve the Coast Guard's ability to conduct joint and combined operations across the full range of peacetime, crisis and wartime missions. Joseph M. Kampf, Anteon President and CEO, stated, "The scope and nature of the requirements of this BPA dictate that the contractor have a broad range of demonstrated capabilities in the areas of information technology, systems engineering and program management with emphasis on acquisition management and system life-cycle support. This award is recognition by the U.S. Coast Guard that Anteon possesses these capabilities and, just as importantly, the requisite commitment to customer satisfaction." Mike Cogburn, Anteon Executive President and Chief Operating Officer, commented, "The Integrated Deepwater System Program is the single most significant acquisition program ever for the U.S. Coast Guard, and it will prepare them well for their homeland security responsibilities. We are looking forward to assisting this key customer in meeting the exciting challenges ahead."
