Treadstone Awarded KBR Contract
July 14, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology NewsHOUSTON, TEXAS (July 14, 2011) – Treadstone Consulting has officially been added to KBR's preferred vendor list after being awarded a one year contract for Houston Contingency SATCOM services.
Treadstone Consulting will provide a TreadNet mobile communications trailer that KBR will station at its Clinton Dr. location in preparation for disaster events such as hurricanes, power outages, floods or tornados. This mobile unit will support KBR's response personnel deployed to disaster zones, providing them with all communication needs. The contract also allows KBR access to 30 additional TreadNet mobile units, available anytime disaster events occur adding an additional layer of security to the company's crisis communications plans.
"KBR's Contingency Operations program provides a rapid response capability to assist federal agencies in disaster relief and recovery operations throughout the United States and its territories," said Doug Horn, Vice President, Contingency Operations. "An integral component of this operational capability is having the capability to deploy contract support into disaster zones with organic communications which can operate independently of existing area communications systems which are often damaged or destroyed due to the disaster event."
TreadNet, Treadstone's VSAT solution, will connect KBR from wherever they are within a disaster stricken area to their home headquarters with a secure and reliable network connection. The service will provide continuous data and communications services such as wireless connections, internet, telephones, fax and auto deploy.
"We are excited to be on the preferred vendor list for KBR," said Chris Dunbar, Treadstone CEO. "Being on call for such a prestigious company is right where we want to be."
Treadstone has been providing TreadNet solutions for over six years to more than 20 companies. Treadstone Consulting is a communications systems integrator focused on providing network infrastructure, application development, IT staffing and VSAT services.
