Two win $23.7M contract to support Air Force survivability program

Azimuth Corp. and General Dynamics Information Technology have won a $23.7 million contract modification with the Air Force to advance research and development efforts for the Hardened Materials Research and Survivability Studies Program.

Under the contract, the two companies will transition and advance the state-of-the-art in materials technologies, hardening concepts, and survivability applications associated with the protection and sustainability of Air Force aircrews and systems from threats associated with photonic light and electromagnetic energy sources, the Defense Department said in a release.

The program’s main technical areas are optical materials and processing, hardening materials and processing, electro-optic/infrared sensor protection, warfighter protection, structural protection, optical technology, computational and theoretical studies on functional materials, proactive threat defeat, and high energy laser source materials.

Work will be performed at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, and is expected to be completed by Jan. 21, 2016.
