VTG begins work on prime DoD IAC contract
VTG of Chantilly, VA announced March 11 that it has begun work on a three-year, $13 million prime contract to support the Naval Digital Integration Support Cell in its effort to integrate data and technology into all areas of naval operations, fundamentally changing how the Navy delivers maritime dominance.
“Our team is honored and immensely proud to be the Navy’s partner-of-choice for this critical mission,” said John Hassoun, VTG president and CEO. “The Naval Operational Architecture is foundational to achieving Distributed Maritime Operations and maintaining our competitive advantage at sea. We welcome the opportunity to leverage our growing digital expertise to support the DISC, especially in model-based systems engineering and DevSecOps.”
VTG will support the DISC by performing research, operational analysis, specialized engineering, and development of the digital platform for Navy and Marine Corps MBSE, readiness, and DevSecOps. This includes developing objective architectures, standards, and processes for integrated naval capability, decision tools, MBSE, digital pilots, and artificial intelligence through coordinated experiments with the fleet.
The contract was awarded to DELTA Constellation Group, VTG’s joint venture with Constellation Software Engineering, under the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center’s multiple-award contract vehicle. DoD IAC MAC task orders are awarded by the US Air Force’s 774th Enterprise Sourcing Squadron to develop and create new knowledge for the enhancement of the Defense Technical Information Center repository and the research & development and science & technology community.
Last year, VTG embarked on a market expansion strategy focused on delivering innovative technologies and digital solutions to a growing portfolio of national security customers. The company bolstered its systems, software, and digital engineering capabilities with the December 2020 acquisition of Intelligent Shift, and more recently rolled-out the VTG Battle Lab, an industry-integrated MBSE environment for next- generation warfare systems.
“VTG will continue to make investments in capabilities and technologies that give our customers a competitive edge,” said Sunil Ramchand, VTG chief growth officer. “The Navy is already leveraging the VTG Battle Lab to develop the future state of the Naval Operational Architecture and optimize interoperability across the fleet. We look forward to offering similar digital capabilities to other customers in the defense enterprise and intelligence community.”
