DOD contract wins
SciTec Wins Spots on $950M Air Force ABMS, $242M DRAID Contract Vehicles
New Jersey-headquartered SciTec announced that it was recently awarded spots on separate contract vehicles supporting the development of advanced capabilities in two of the Department of Defense’s major technology initiatives. Specifically, the twin awards are geared toward realizing the Joint All Domain Command and Control as well as the Data Readiness for Artificial Intelligence Development visions, SciTec said Tuesday.
In a statement, the space and defense manufacturing company said that the first contract, which was awarded on March 14 by the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, supports the service’s Advanced Battle Management System. The deal calls for the “maturation, demonstration, and proliferation of capabilities across platforms and domains, leveraging open systems design, modern software and algorithm development” in order to enable JADC2.
SciTec said that the multi-level security contract provides for the development and operation of systems as a unified force across the air, land, sea, space, cyber and electromagnetic spectrum domains. It calls for an open architecture family of systems that enables capabilities via multiple integrated platforms. The multiple-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity has a $950M ceiling.
The second contract, awarded on March 24 by the Army Contracting Command on behalf of the Joint Artificial Intelligence Center, provides for rapid procurement and agile delivery of AI data readiness capabilities for the DOD. The Data Readiness for Artificial Intelligence Development basic ordering agreement is worth $242 million.
For the second deal, SciTec said it will leverage its AI and machine learning expertise, training data development and curation, and framework agnostic ML operations pipeline to rapidly design and develop AI technologies that conform with the DOD’s ethics principles.
