General Dynamics buys Network Connectivity Solutions


General Dynamics announced that it has acquired Network
Connectivity Solutions, a provider of enterprise services and cloud computing
to the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD).


The company did not disclose the value of the
transaction. Founded in 1997, NETCONN provides enterprise information
technology (IT) services to the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) and other
DoD agencies.


NETCONN supports net-centric IT operations, including
data center infrastructure, value engineering, information assurance and edge
computing. The company has approximately 160 employees.


NETCONN will become part of General Dynamics
Information Technology, a business unit of General Dynamics based in Fairfax,
Va. General Dynamics Information Technology provides systems integration,
systems engineering, professional services and simulation and training to
customers in the defense, intelligence, homeland security, health, federal
civilian government, state and local government and commercial sectors.


“NETCONN’s capabilities and relationships will
bolster General Dynamics’ strong portfolio of services and solutions aimed at
helping the Defense Department cut costs and increase efficiency while meeting
large-scale, enterprise IT requirements,” said Dan Johnson, president,
General Dynamics Information Technology.


“NETCONN provides IT support to the DoD
organizations responsible for enterprise services and cyber security; this
includes serving as a prime contractor on DISA’s ENCORE II contract,”
Johnson added.


ENCORE II is an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity,
multiple-award contract for use by military services, the Department of
Defense, the intelligence community and other federal agencies. NETCONN
was awarded an ENCORE II contract in 2008.


NETCONN has participated in all aspects of DISA data
center design, implementation and operation as a prime contractor since 1997,
and is supporting the DoD in preparation for the Federal Data Center
Consolidation initiatives.
