Navy and Marine Corps organizations that need this software should coordinate their requirements through the chain of command to the OPNAV N6 and HQMC C4 points of contact identified in Naval Message 312021Z of 31 Jan 2009.

Jan. 23, 2009, the DON awarded MTM Technologies a Blanket Purchase Agreement for purchase of the DON Mobile Armor software bundle.
