Indus Technology Inc., based in Old Town, said on Jan. 29 that it won a U.S. Navy task order that could be worth up to $61.7 million if the Navy exercises all of its options.

Under the deal, Indus and several other companies will provide international defense contracting support services. The deal will be worth $12 million in the first year, according to company CEO Jim Lasswell.

Indus, a small business, will lead a team that includes Booz Allen Hamilton, General Dynamics Information Technology, Highbury Defense Group and two overseas concerns, the Institute for Information Industry in Taiwan and the Saudi Naval Support Co. Ltd. of Saudi Arabia.

According to Indus, the task order allows the team “to perform support services that span the full lifecycle of the security cooperation process, including requirements definition and foreign military sales case development, letter of offer and acceptance, case execution, case reconciliation and case closure as well as administrative and acquisition support.”

The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command, or Spawar, awarded the task order. The deal supports Spawar’s international C4I integration program office. C4I is a military abbreviation for command, control, communications, computers and intelligence — essentially communications and information technology.
