Newport News-based ITA Awarded $50M Contract

ITA International LLC

Newport News-based defense contractor ITA International LLC was awarded a five-year, $50 million contract to consolidate and modernize the U.S. Air Force’s electromagnetic spectrum operations at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida, the company announced Tuesday.

EMS includes an array of frequencies used for radios, GPS, cell phones and remotely controlled devices; previously used mainly by U.S. military branches, the spectrum now sees commercial and adversarial military competition, according to Department of Defense officials. ITA will help automate and integrate its EMS data under the new contract, awarded by the U.S. General Services Administration.

ITA started in 2005 as a marine business and is now an international provider of integrated support services for government agencies, nongovernmental organizations and commercial clients. The company placed at No. 19 in the Virginia Chamber’s Fantastic 50 list in 2020, which recognizes the state’s fastest growing companies.
