Astrion-Fluor Joint Venture Receives $3.7B Test Operations Support Contract

The U.S. Air Force has awarded Beyond New Horizons a contract valued at more than $3.7 billion to support the Arnold Engineering Development Complex.

Under the 12-year deal, the Astrion-Fluor joint venture will provide test operations, technology development and capital improvements, among other services, to ensure the continuous operations of the AEDC ground test mission.

The contract comes after the company secured a $910 million deal to help the Army Test and Evaluation Command ensure the safety, suitability and effectiveness of aviation platforms, Astrion said.

The contractor will perform work at six locations, including Arnold Air Force Base in Tennessee, the Landing Gear Test Facility at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio and Tunnel 9 at White Oak, Maryland.

Astrion Chief Growth Officer Fog Hahn, a 4×24 member, said that the Air Force deciding to work with an Astrion-led joint venture solidifies the company’s position as a partner for mission testing, operations and engineering.

Several projects have been testing their technologies at AEDC. Northrop Grumman is the latest company to use the facility, testing the Stage 2 solid rocket motor of its three-stage Sentinel intercontinental ballistic missile.
