ECS awarded prime spot on DARPA TASS $850M MAC IDIQ
ECS, based in Fairfax, VA, announced on October 19 that it has been named one of seven prime contractors on an $850 million, five-year contract to provide technical, financial, administrative and business support services to the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). The DARPA Technical and Analytical Support Services (TASS) multiple-award, indefinite delivery/indefinite quality (IDIQ) contract covers a broad range of high-level advisory and assistance services, from the development of strategic and technical plans to research and risk assessment for new technologies.
As an agency of the US Department of Defense (DoD), DARPA’s mission is to develop breakthrough technologies for national security by working with innovators inside and outside of the federal government. ECS is a respected partner in all six of the DARPA technical offices, with prime contracts in DARPA’s Tactical Technology Office (TTO), Defense Science Office (DSO), Strategic Technology Office (STO), Microsystems Technology Office (MTO), and Contracts Management Office (CMO).
“We are excited that ECS was again selected as a prime awardee at DARPA,” said Tim Wilde, senior vice president of science and engineering at ECS. “We have a truly dedicated team of scientists, engineers, and program analysts that are devoted to making the DARPA mission successful.”
“ECS has a long history supporting the DARPA mission,” said George Wilson, president of ECS. “We are especially excited about the innovations ECS can bring to the table related to artificial intelligence and machine learning, as DARPA outlines the path for the next wave of AI technologies.”
