HII secures ARL contract

HII’s Mission Technologies division was awarded a $94 million contract to provide experimentation, integration and transition program support for the U.S. Army Research Laboratory, the McLean, VA-based company announced May 8.

The contract was awarded under the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center’s (DoD IAC) multiple-award contract (MAC) vehicle. DoD IAC MAC task orders are awarded by the U.S. Air Force’s 774th Enterprise Sourcing Squadron to develop and create new knowledge for the enhancement of the Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) repository and the Research and Development (R&D) and Science and Technology (S&T) community.

The contract has a five-year period of performance. HII will provide research, development, test and evaluation to enhance weapon systems, combat systems and sensor capabilities for U.S. Army and Department of Defense mission partners.

“We are honored to continue supporting the Army’s mission,” said Garry Schwartz, president of Mission Technologies’ C5ISR business group. “Providing research, rapid prototyping and solutions development that address technology gaps is critical to enhancing mission capability and maintaining decisive advantage over adversaries.”

Work will be performed at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory in Adelphi, Maryland, and at Mission Technologies’ growing operations center in Syracuse, New York.
