The Air Force has chosen 14 companies for a potential 10-year, $998 million contract to help research and evaluate weapon systems.
All bidders received positions on the contract, the Defense Department said in its Tuesday contracts digest. Work will also include tests and evaluations of the weapon systems along with subsystems and components.
The contract covers a five-year base period followed by five one-year options and used lowest-price technically acceptable criteria in the source selection, according to Deltek.
- Booz Allen Hamilton
- Corvid Technologies
- Cummings Aerospace
- Georgia Tech Applied Research Corp.
- IERUS Technologies
- Intiuitive Research and Technology Corp.
- Maden Tech Consulting
- Radiance Technologies
- RT Logic
- Trident Research
Dynetics and GTRI will continue the work as incumbents but a third incumbent Ducommun apparently didn't bid as a prime.
The Air Force sought help to develop test-and-evaluation systems and facilities that can oversee performance of weapons, cyber systems and future technologies.
