DHS Tasks Amentum With Developing Technologies to Combat Multidomain Threats

The Department of Homeland Security’s Science and Technology Directorate has awarded Germantown, Maryland-based Amentum a five-year contract with a $48 million ceiling for new tools to fight multidomain threats.

Amentum will provide research, development, testing and evaluation services meant to expedite the buildout of new capabilities in emerging areas such as space surveillance; unmanned aerial systems; biometrics; alternative energy; and command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance. In a press release, Jill Bruning, engineering, science and technology group president, past Wash100 winner and member of the Potomac Officers Club, emphasized C4ISR’s role in repelling cyberattacks and autonomous systems.

Amentum is expected to apply an agile approach to development. DHS seeks to keep up with threats and the evolving technology needs of its components.

The award was issued under the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center’s multiple-award contract vehicle, Amentum said Monday.

In 2022, the company secured a potential five-year, $260 million DHS S&T award under the DOD IAC contract for anti-drone and cyber threat capabilities.
