Two win $60.1M contracts to increase warfighter 'lethality'

Two companies have won $60.1 million contracts to support the Air Force’s 711th Human Performance Wing on work to increase warfighter lethality and survivability.

The winners are:

  • Infoscitex Corp.
  • Ball Aerospace and Technologies Corp.

Under the contract, the companies will perform research to "increase warfighter lethality and enhance combat survivability while reducing information processing demands through revolutionary human interface technology,” the Defense Department said.

The 711th Human Performance Wing is trying to emphasize the technology priorities of: control of remotely piloted aircraft; decision making and autonomy; multi-sensory technologies; conceptual design and demonstration of advanced information operations workstations; advanced visualizations, technology and human cognitive modeling, the Defense Department said.

Work will be performed in Dayton, Ohio, and at Wright Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio. The contract runs through May 28, 2020.

Three bids were received for this contract.
