US Army GCSS

Comtech is a subcontractor to Northrop Grumman Corporation on the US Army Global Combat Support System (GCSS) contract. This is a cornerstone US Army logistics program that helps ensure that soldiers receive the right equipment and repair parts at the right time. Under the GCSS-Army (Field/Tactical) contract, Northrop Grumman’s Mission System sector implemented an enterprise system that provides the current status of all Army equipment and assets so that soldiers can best anticipate, allocate, and manage the flow of available resources.
