NCI, Inc. (NASDAQ:NCIT), a leading provider of information technology (IT) solutions and professional services to U.S. Federal Government agencies, announced today that it was awarded a task order under NETCENTS in the third quarter of 2013 for the development, integration, and delivery of two additional nodes of the Air Force Distributed Common Ground System (AF DCGS) Data Storage and Dissemination (DSD) system. NCI provided the first two DSD nodes under a similar contract in 2012.

The DSD accelerates data transfers across the AF DCGS network and provides storage, dissemination, processing, and retrieval capabilities to the net-centric AF DCGS enterprise. The DSD is completely redundant for fail-safe considerations, and it is anticipated that the deployment of DSD capabilities to specified locations will be used as the primary distribution method for large data files over the AF DCGS network.

“We are pleased to continue our relationship with the AF DCGS and are proud to provide solutions to the AF DCGS enterprise by bringing innovation to the warfighter and enabling battlefield readiness through affordable IT and cyber capabilities,” said Brian Clark, NCI’s President.
