US Army Taps QinetiQ to Support C5ISR Center Fort Belvoir Facility Operations
QinetiQ US will continue providing technical and programmatic services to the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command C5ISR Center Fort Belvoir Prototyping Integration Facility under a $45 million task order.
Work includes system development, fabrication, sensor and system integration, multi-function sensor suites prototyping and technology assessment to support current and future PIF Belvoir customers and their command, control, computers, communications, cyber, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance requirements.
The contract includes a one-year base period of performance and four one-year option periods. It was awarded through the Deployable Adaptive Global Responder Support indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract vehicle, QinetiQ US said.
According to QinetiQ CEO and President Shawn Purvis, a Potomac Officers Club member and 2022 Wash100 winner, the company will quickly deliver innovative capabilities to support national security as part of its continued partnership with the C5ISR Center.
“Supporting the U.S. national security is QinetiQ’s highest priority,” the executive added.
Commenting on the task order, Stephen Iwicki, executive vice president and general manager of QinetiQ’s C5ISR business unit, said the defense company supports the Fort Belvoir facility to assist unique and special programs with urgent and critical requirements.
QinetiQ recently agreed to acquire Avantus Federal from NewSpring Holdings for $590 million. According to QinetiQ, the deal will expand its capabilities in national security, cyber, mission services and information platforms; improve its offerings to the Department of Defense, homeland and national security and federal civilian agencies; and address the defense and intelligence challenges facing government clients.
The transaction is expected to close by the end of 2022.
