LGS Innovations™, an independent subsidiary of Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE: ALU)
(Euronext Paris: ALU), today announced it has been awarded a contract worth
just over $49 million to upgrade the U.S. Army’s Main Communications Facility
(MCF) in Southwest Asia. The MCF, designed as a state-of-the-art commercial
communications operations center, will serve as the central information
systems hub for the region.

The MCF will house 9,000 square feet of usable equipment room space and will
be capable of multiplexing and de-multiplexing circuits transported over
copper, fiber, satellite, or terrestrial Line of Sight (LOS) radios.

“LGS deploys the most advanced, state-of-the-art communications technologies
available to both defense and civilian organizations,” said LGS Innovations
CEO Kevin Kelly. “This opportunity to upgrade and modernize such a mission
critical piece of infrastructure for the U.S. Army will not only support our
military and warfighters abroad, but will also help the Federal Government to
continue to provide for homeland security and overcome future overseas
communications challenges.”

LGS was selected as the exclusive contractor to engineer, furnish, install,
test, and secure the Army’s extensive network, transmission, and voice
infrastructure in Southwest Asia as part of the Department of Defense’s IMOD
initiative. The company has also been tasked to execute a critical cutover of
transmission circuits as well as design, develop, furnish, and install a
virtualized infrastructure to accommodate the migration of servers and their
applications from existing facilities to the MCF.
