ECS wins multiple ASTRO awards
On August 31, Fairfax, VA-based ECS announced that it has been named a prime awardee on the General Services Administration’s (GSA) ASTRO contract. The contract focuses on the development, integration, operation, maintenance, and support of unmanned/manned/optionally manned systems, robotics, and platforms.
Managed by the GSA’s Federal Systems Integration and Management Center (FEDSIM), ASTRO is a five-year, multiple-award (MA), indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract with no defined ceiling value and estimated worth in the multi-billion dollar range. GSA also maintains the option to extend contracts for five additional years.
ECS was selected for multiple contract awards with wins in the Mission Operations and Development/System Integration pools. As part of its role, ECS will leverage its expertise in autonomous aviation, artificial intelligence, machine learning (AI/ML), and mission solutions to develop and deploy operational AI/ML algorithms across the intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) domain.
“ECS continues to be at the forefront of analytics, autonomous robotics, and AI/ML algorithm development,” said Marshall Thames, senior vice president of ECS Mission Solutions business unit. “Through the ASTRO contract vehicle, ECS will provide the DoD with innovative technologies that deliver new capabilities to the warfighter, ensuring the success of future missions.”
“Our company has a long history of delivering cutting-edge, never-before developed AI/ML solutions to federal customers,” said John Heneghan, chief operating officer of ECS. “We look forward to working with GSA FEDSIM on this innovative contract as we strengthen our nation’s warfighters across sea, air, land, and space.”
