Amentum Secures $245M Air Force Microelectronics Capability Improvement Contract

The U.S. Air Force has awarded Amentum a $245 million contract to support the Defense Technical Information Center’s research, development, test and evaluation efforts for microelectronics facilities and laboratories.

The DTIC performs the RDT&E work for the U.S. Navy’s Strategic Systems Programs and the Naval Surface Warfare Center Crane Strategic Microelectronics Division.

Research and development, technology maturation and insertion, analysis, testing and systems engineering services will be provided using the Integrated Digital Engineering Approach to improve the microelectronics facilities and laboratories, Amentum said.

As part of the contract, the company will enhance capabilities related to the Navy’s fleet ballistic missile and strategic weapons systems and the Department of Defense’s strategic weapons platforms equipped with critical microelectronic technologies. Amentum will also increase the Navy’s prototyping and test surge capacity and provide subject matter expertise.

Jill Bruning, president of Amentum’s engineering, science and technology group and a Wash100 awardee, said the company’s digital engineering ecosystem and model-based system engineering expertise will bring capability improvements for strategic radiation-hardened microelectronics.
