AIS awarded $48.4M Air Force cyber contract
Assured Information Security (AIS) in Rome, NY, announced on March 7 that it has been awarded a $48.4 million contract for full spectrum cyber capabilities. The objective of this effort is to provide the Air Force with tools and technologies to aid in cyber warfare. This contract provides for research, development and transition of cyber technologies to enable rapid cyber operations and will result in the accelerated delivery of innovative cyber solutions to the warfighter.
“The full spectrum cyber capabilities effort is an exciting opportunity for AIS and we are very pleased to have been awarded this contract,” said Salvatore Paladino, program manager at AIS for the Agile Cyber Solutions (ACS) Group, whose team will be completing the work. “This work will have a measurable and powerful impact on cyber mission assurance by assisting the Air Force in maintaining cyber superiority.”
This award is the result of a competitive acquisition and two offers were received. Work will be completed by AIS through March, 2024. Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), also in Rome, is the contracting authority for the award.
“There is no doubt the Air Force made the right choice by selecting AIS for this important work in cyber security, which will enhance both our national defense and the regional economy,” said U.S. Senator Charles Schumer. “Together, the local workforces at AIS and Rome Lab will blend their expertise to deliver real results in developing our nation’s cybersecurity infrastructure. I will continue to do all I can to bring more federal work – and more jobs – to the Mohawk Valley through partnerships like these.”
“The Mohawk Valley plays a critical role in developing our country’s cybersecurity infrastructure,” said Congressman Anthony Brindisi. “Choosing AIS to do this important work will boost our local economy and ensure the Air Force has the tools and resources it needs to keep our country safe and secure. I will continue working to help bring more of these types of opportunities to Upstate New York.”
