Peraton selected for $480M US Army contract
Peraton has been selected by the U.S. Army as one of ten companies eligible to support its Deployable Adaptive Global Responder Support (DAGRS) program, the Herndon, VA-based company announced October 17. The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) vehicle contract is valued up to $480 million during a five-year period. The DAGRS purpose is to provide systems and solutions that will allow U.S. and allied military forces and civilian leadership to respond efficiently and effectively to emergencies or threat situations.
Under the contract, Peraton will provide coordination and technology-based solutions that help the U.S. Armed Services, allied forces, academic and industry partners develop future and contingency response activities globally. This includes research and development, and technology readiness—design, development and operational integration of equipment and systems among the Armed Services of the United States and allied countries.
