Blue Tech Inc., a small business based in San Diego, is among 21 companies nationwide that received indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contracts from the U.S. Navy to supply electronic equipment.

Initially, Blue Tech will receive $1,190, and it is now eligible for millions of dollars in awards. The Navy may award up to $750 million over five years, splitting the sum among the 21 vendors.

Under the deal announced June 29, the contractors will provide commercial, off-the-shelf command and control equipment and related support services to the Navy and other federal agencies.

The command and control equipment may include video systems, imagery systems, global positioning system equipment, intelligence support systems, intercom systems, tactical displays, tactical processors and tactical workstations.

SPAWAR Systems Center Atlantic in Charleston, S.C. made the award. SPAWAR is short for Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command.

Most of the 21 recipients are small businesses, though large businesses such as Science Applications International Corp. made the cut.

The Navy said that 28 businesses submitted bids.
