MCLEAN, Va., Sept. 15 2010

Global Defense Technology & Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:GTEC) , a provider of mission-critical, technology-based systems, solutions and services for national security agencies and programs of the U.S. government, today announced that the company has secured a $37 million contract to provide camp solutions to the U.S. Army in support of the military's force modernization and mobility efforts. Under the contract, GTEC will deliver Expeditionary Tricon Systems (ETS), representing 18 Force Provider Modules, incorporating the latest advances in approved shower water re-use technology.

Based on the delivery schedule, GTEC expects to recognize more than $20 million of contract revenue in 2010 with the remainder received in 2011.

With a military that is more expeditionary than ever before, GTEC's camp solutions are designed to provide rapidly deployable support for U.S. troops operating at home and overseas. Housed in an expandable shelter, each camp system features a modular design which allows the unit to be used in a variety of health and welfare support configurations. The systems are light-weight, rugged, easily transportable, require a minimal two-person set up and can be fully functional in just 45 minutes.

John Hillen, President & CEO, commented on the order, "As a mission partner for the U.S. military, GTEC is committed to supporting critical national security operations and providing unique solutions by delivering highly engineered systems that enhance the U.S. Army's expeditionary capabilities."

All work will be performed at GTEC's integration facilities in Easton and Frederick, Maryland.
