Lockheed will manage, operate, and secure the Pentagon's data networks 
and provide 24 by 7 support to users. According the Army's IT Agency, 
the Pentagon's network infrastructure includes more than 16,000 miles of 
wiring and cable.

Lockheed has been providing outsourced IT services to the Pentagon since

includes two one-year options, so it could run through 2014.
