The Navy is expanding the scope of work for this new contract that supports cyber warfare and research development efforts.
The MIL Corp. has won a five-year, $223.4 million contract that will continue its role as a provider of cyber warfare engineering services to a Navy division responsible for aircraft and related systems.
Seven companies submitted proposals for the small business set-aside contract that will support two components of the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division, the Pentagon said in its Friday awards digest.
MIL won the current iteration of this contract in 2019 at a $60 million ceiling, an indication that the Navy is expanding the scope of work under the new award.
The Navy uses the contract to acquire services for cyber warfare and research development efforts, which encompasses prototyping and limited production of hardware and software.
MIL will also focus on production solutions to address cyber vulnerabilities and mitigation of vulnerabilities. Cyber test and evaluation and tool development is another requirement, along with cyber support for intelligence operations.
Work will support the Cyber Warfare Department and Digital Analytics Infrastructure and Technology Advancement Group, both of which are part of the the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division.
