booz-allen-112Since its inception in 1958, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has been at the forefront of strengthening U.S. national security through technological advances. DARPA’s Defense Sciences Office (DSO) has awarded McLean, VA-based Booz Allen Hamilton a spot on a $120 million Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract, the company announced September 22. Booz Allen will provide scientific, engineering and technical assistance to support DARPA’s research and development programs.

“Booz Allen has been a trusted partner to DARPA and DSO for more than 25 years,” said Angela Wallace, Booz Allen vice president and leader of the firm’s Engineering team. “In the coming years, we’re going to continue our collaboration with the agency as it works to address a number of evolving trends, such as the rapidly changing nature of warfare and opponent capabilities, the increasing complexity of the systems and systems-of-systems being developed, and the blending of traditional soldiers and tactics with machines and robotics.”

Under the new five-year contract, Booz Allen is going to provide assistance across the full program life cycle, from initial conception through planning to implementation, by delivering technical, programmatic, financial and administrative services.
