Amentum secures DHS S&T contract

On May 1, Chantilly, VA-based Amentum announced that it has been awarded a five-year contract with a maximum value of $48 million by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science & Technology Directorate (S&T) to develop and deploy advanced technology capabilities and prototypes to counter emerging multi-domain threats.

Amentum was awarded this contract under the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center’s (DOD IAC) multiple-award contract (MAC) vehicle. These DOD IAC MAC task orders are awarded by the U.S. Air Force’s 774th Enterprise Sourcing Squadron to develop and create new knowledge for the enhancement of the DTIC repository and the R&D and S&T community.

“Advanced C4ISR is critical to counter multi-domain threats such as cyberattacks and autonomous systems. Amentum’s technology development expertise will help DHS advance new technology capabilities to protect our national security,” said Jill Bruning, president of Amentum’s Engineering, Science, and Technology Group.

Under this contract, Amentum will develop and improve capabilities through technology concepts and techniques to counter emerging air, land, maritime, and cyber threats. Amentum will perform complex Research, Development, Test and Evaluation (RDT&E) services to facilitate rapid technology development and transition to meet evolving DHS component requirements. Amentum’s RDT&E services will focus on emerging technologies in the areas of C4ISR, space-surveillance and communications sensors, Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), biometrics, forensics, alternative energy, and advanced robotics to keep DHS ahead of evolving threats. Amentum applies an agile engineering and development approach that utilizes state-of-the-art software tools and iterative methods.
