 MCLEAN, Va., Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) today announced that it has been named as one of six prime contractors to be awarded contracts by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) to deliver technical integration services under the Defense Technical Integration Services (DTIS) program. The contract could be worth $935 million over the next seven years and will be shared among the six contractors.
 "Our work on the DTIS program will support the information system integration and migration efforts of several of our divisions," said Albert F. Zettlemoyer, president of the Government Systems Group of Unisys. "The goal of the DTIS program, which is managed by DISA's Center for Integration and Interoperability (CFI&I), is to create a 'system of systems' by vertically and horizontally integrating information systems throughout DoD."
 The Department of Defense (DoD) currently operates thousands of mission-support, command and control and intelligence applications. DISA's long-term challenge is to create a seamless information infrastructure that will sustain two major initiatives: Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence for the Warrior (C4IFTW) and Defense Information Management (IM).
 The members of the Unisys DTIS team include GTE Government Systems Co., PRC Inc., Ogden Government Services, Inc. and American Management Systems, Inc., BTG Inc., Performance Engineering Corp., DSD Laboratories Inc., Troy Systems, Inc., ENTEK Inc. and Systems Resources Corp. and Howard University.

"Our team provides a balance of capabilities, ranging from wide experience in mission support, to proven success in DoD warfighting information systems, to strengths in business re- engineering."
 Similar contracts were awarded to BDM Engineering Services Company, Boeing Computer Support Services, Inc., Computer Sciences Corporation Systems Engineering Division, Electronic Data Systems Corporation, and Martin Marietta Technical Services, Inc.
