Springs firms receive multi-million contracts

It’s been a good month for Colorado Springs-based defense contracting firms.

Honeywell Technology Solutions in Colorado Springs was awarded a $219.4 million contract modification this week.  As part of the award, Honeywell will provide systems and maintenance engineering, network support integration, on-site and off-site depot level maintenance and software maintenance of the Air Force Satellite Control Network.

The work was awarded through the Peterson Air Force Base contracting office.

In another recent announcement,  ITT Systems, also located in the Pikes Peak region, was awarded a $17.7 million contract. That work will be done by Colorado Springs workers, for the Air Force’s European command. ITT will provide a variety of communications support for bases throughout Europe.
