Chesapeake Technology International Corp. has won a $9.8 million task order contract with the U.S. Navy to develop software capabilities in support of flight path data.
The contract is a Small Business Innovation Research, or SBIR, Phase III contract.

Work will be performed in California, Md., Cherry Point, N.C., Whidbey Island, Wash., Point Mugu, Calif., and Denver, Colo., and is expected to be completed in July 2018.
Funding in the amount of $409,000 is obligated at the time of the award, none of which will expire at the end of fiscal 2013.
