(NYSE and Euronext Paris: ALU), has been awarded a contract worth $14.1
million to transition the U.S. Army's Fort Leonard Wood to a digital
Voice-over Internet Protocol (VoIP) data system. Fort Leonard Wood is a
primary center for all Department of Defense (DoD) training for
earthmoving, truck driving, civil support, and CBRN (Chemical,

Police School, as well as the 4th Maneuver Enhancement Brigade. Between
85,000 and 90,000 military and civilian personnel are trained annually
at Fort Leonard Wood.
The modernization effort brings a VoIP solution to the facility with
25,000 universal RTU licenses and the ability to expand to as many as
36,000 RTU, if needed.
"This is a great opportunity for LGS
to help modernize this important military installation," said LGS
Innovations CEO Kevin Kelly. "By modernizing to a digital data system,
Fort Leonard Wood will be able to take advantage of all of the benefits
of greater bandwidth, data speeds, and rich media capabilities for its
