Concurrent Technologies Corporation named awardee on $248.6M US Army Research Lab ISR contract
Edward Sheehan Jr., president and chief executive officer of Johnstown, PA-based Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC), announced on June 1 that CTC has been named an awardee on a $248.6 million contract from the U.S. Army Research Laboratory to provide Persistent Surveillance-Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (PS-ISR) Technology Research and Development Services. This Multiple Award, Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ), Cost Plus Fixed Fee (CPFF) contract was awarded under full and open competition and has a duration of five years.
Under this contract, contractors will be given an opportunity to compete for Task Orders to support the Sensors and Electron Devices Directorate (SEDD), ISR Technology Integration Branch of the United States Army Research Laboratory (ARL). The mission of the ARL SEDD is to research, develop, and operate sensors and electron devices to ensure U.S. military superiority and to provide the U.S. Army effective intelligence and information tools, guaranteeing our soldiers’ information dominance needed in today’s battlefield.
“CTC has been working in the intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance space for many years, and we look forward to providing the latest technologies and mission-driven solutions to our new client—the U.S. Army Research Laboratory,” said Sheehan. “We’re honored to have this opportunity to provide solutions that will ensure information dominance for our soldiers.”
Services will encompass a wide variety of technology support to include analysis, studies, development, design, and demonstration of innovative ISR concepts and technologies. These technologies form a holistic approach to locating terrorist networks through Persistent Surveillance, Open Source Intelligence, and the identification and localization of weapons of mass destruction systems, as well as improvised explosive devices (IED).
Technologies include sensors, cloud computing, multi-source data fusion, munitions detection systems, signal processing tools and concepts, processing, exploitation, and dissemination (PED) tool automation capabilities, and counter improvised explosive devices (CIED) technologies/systems in asymmetric, counter-terrorism, and counter-insurgency warfare scenarios. These technologies will convert sensor data and intelligence data to actionable intelligence and enable the local commander to make informed real-time decisions based on all available intelligence.
