ECS secures ARL AI/ML contract

On March 5, Fairfax, VA-based ECS announced that it received a three-year, $190 million contract from the United States Army Combat Capabilities Development Command (DEVCOM) Army Research Lab (ARL). As prime contractor, ECS will serve as a system integrator for DEVCOM ARL, delivering and integrating artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities for Department of Defense (DoD) services and combatant commands.

The contract, awarded in Q3 of 2023, is a new initiative helping aid DoD objectives through the expansion and extension of key AI research. ECS will help develop, experiment with, and demonstrate advanced capabilities that provide new AI mobility and AI agility, at theater/field-level, across multiple critical DoD programs and domains.

“As the DoD looks to increase its AI capabilities, they face a technically challenging problem set,” said John Heneghan, president of ECS. “As one of the largest providers of AI solutions to the DoD, ECS will lean on our broad AI expertise to help the DoD meet its automation objectives: increasing the safety, readiness, and decision dominance of our nation’s warfighter.”
