CLARKSBURG, Md. – The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has awarded Thales Communications Inc. of Clarksburg, Md., a Prime Contract to provide public safety and tactical communications products to DHS under its new Tactical Communications (TacCom) program.  

Through this multiple-award, indefinite-delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) program, DHS will quickly procure vital tactical radio equipment and other products and services. The agency will use the equipment to support reliable and interoperable public safety communications for its missions to keep the homeland safe, including border protection, customs enforcement, drug interdiction, and emergency response to natural and man-made disasters.

"Communications for DHS agencies that interoperate with all first responders is critical to protecting national security and supporting local governments during disasters,” said Michael Sheehan, President and CEO of Thales Communications, Inc. "Thales is positioned to offer DHS, through the TacCom program, the critical multiband band, multi-mission radio equipment it needs to keep America safe, while offering the greatest value to taxpayers.”

In addition to DHS, other federal agencies, including the Departments of Interior, State, and Justice, and the White House Communications Agency, can use the TacCom IDIQ contract vehicle to acquire the multiband radios they need to perform their missions.  The two-year program has three option years and a potential ceiling value of $3 billion for all awardees.
