An $850 million award for technical and analytical support for Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) will be split with these winners, along with Centra Technology, ECS Federal, and Schafer Government Services.
The $596 million contract will include hardware and software/security applications necessary to provide the warfighter with the capability to communicate, maintain situational awareness, and achieve information dominance.
The study will look at risk reductions of new capabilities on the initial production of the KC-46 Pegasus. The first 18 combat-ready aircraft are expected to be delivered to the U.S. Air Force in late 2018 or early 2019.
Contractors will provide strategic assessment and planning; manpower assessment; financial program management; quantitative analysis, forecasting, performance assessment, and research, development, test and evaluation program management support services for the Deputy Chief of Naval Operations (DCNO).
The Common Hardware Systems 5th Generation (CHS-5) will manage a portfolio of solutions including, but not limited to, servers, storage, clients, networking devices, ruggedized platforms, hand-held end devices, Operational Transit Cases (OTC) and peripherals devices.
Partnering with Engineering and Software System Solutions of San Diego, these engineering services will ensure mission safety, improve costs and operational capability, and improve environmental safety and friendliness.
Currently fielded weapon systems are not designed to be suppressed continuously. The Suppressed Upper Receiver Group (SURG) weapon upgrade of the M4A1 lower receiver group should improve reliability, durability, and reduce blowback to operators.
