Air Force Selects Expansia as EWAAC Prime Contractor to Accelerate Digital Acquisition

The U.S. Air Force has tapped a defense contractor to help accelerate weapons acquisition –  from development to sustainment and ensuring it meets current and future capabilities.

On Wednesday, digital transformation consultancy firm Expansia announced that it was selected as a prime contractor on the Eglin Wide Agile Acquisition Contract by the Air Force.

EWAAC would allow the Air Force to accelerate novel weapons capability research, implement new solutions and assess warfighting technologies. The Air Force Lifecycle Management Center manages EWAAC, which has a $46 billion ceiling and a 10-year performance period, Expansia said.

CEO and founding partner Adam “AJ” Jarnagin said EWAAC gives the service a chance to rapidly roll out digital solutions throughout a program’s lifecycle. He added that the new contract allows the company to provide innovative solutions to address threats to national security.

Expansia previously collaborated with the military service to establish a prototype of the AGORA advanced manufacturing digital marketplace, a platform that provides users access to a centralized hub of data and other tools used for streamlining Air Force assets.
