RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Siemens Government Technologies (SGT), Inc. – the federally-focused U.S. arm of technology powerhouse Siemens – has been awarded an initial task order for a contract valued up to $21 million by the U.S. Army Engineering and Support Center, Huntsville, for electronic security maintenance and support of vital operations conducted by the Space Force 45th Space Wing on Florida’s Space Coast. Utilizing the Army Corps of Engineers’ Utility Monitoring and Control Systems fifth generation (UMCS V) contracting vehicle, SGT will leverage smart infrastructure expertise to provide maintenance and support for electronic security systems in support of orbital vehicle launches and range operations at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station (CCAFS), Patrick Air Force Base (PAFB) and Kennedy Space Center.
The 45th Space Wing has a distinguished history and legacy dating back to the 1940s. As one of two space launch wings for the U.S. Space Force, the 45th Space Wing provides support for NASA, the Air Force’s Technical Applications Center and 920th Rescue Wing and the Naval Ordnance Test Unit. Taken as a whole, these organizations are ultimately responsible for U.S. national interests in space exploration, strategic defense and deterrence missions.
“Our team at the Cape has more than 49 years of collective experience in supporting the unique needs of our Space Force customer for fire and electronic security, with thorough knowledge of the systems installed for safe, secure and reliable operations,” said Tina Dolph, president and CEO of Siemens Government Technologies. “We look forward to meeting our customers’ highest expectations for new efficiencies without compromise for safety or security, and, we have just the team in place to support the pioneering men and women who are defining our future in Space security, science and exploration.”
SGT has an established track record of applying Siemens’ deep portfolio of building automation, utility monitoring and control systems and enhanced security systems at military installations around the world. In November 2019, SGT was selected as one of 14 companies qualified to participate on the UMCS V contract vehicle – a seven-year, multiple award contract with a $1.2 billion ceiling. Under UMCS V, SGT delivers a range of services inclusive of heating, ventilation, chiller/boiler controls, utility metering, automated controls, as well as fire alarm, protection and electronic security.
