Unisys wins government security deal

The company will provide IT and telecommunications services to the Transportation Security Administration created by President Bush after the Sept. 11 terror attacks.

Unisys has won a three-year contract with the U.S. Transportation Security Administration that is worth $244 million in the first two years, the IT services company said Monday.

Unisys will provide IT and telecommunications services related to hardware, software and network security to the agency created by President Bush after the Sept. 11 terror attacks.

The security organization, expected to become part of the Department of Homeland Security, will pay Unisys $23 million for the government's fiscal year 2002, which ends Sept. 30, and an estimated $221 million for the fiscal year 2003, the company said.

Unisys said it will be expected to make items such as handheld computers, secure mobile radios and wide-area and local-area networks used by the agency can work together, the company said.
