The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) awarded a $127 million contract to defense, technologies, and shipbuilder company Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII) to improve systems integration through research, development, testing, and evaluation efforts.
Over five years, HII will work to improve the DoD’s Information Analysis Center, which serves the DoD’s innovation and technological development through collaboration on scientific and information development and circulation. These efforts will benefit the Defense Technical Information Center in particular and research and development in general through improvements to software and hardware capabilities, systems engineering, and more.
“Through proven methodologies and tools, our team will deliver solutions that deliver greater efficiencies across the systems used by the Security Cooperation community,” Garry Schwartz, president of HII Mission Technologies C5ISR business group, said. “This will increase DSCA’s ability to achieve milestone success and realize cost savings while addressing enhancements that will benefit all DOD-administered Security Assistance programs.”
The funding was part of a multiple-award contract from the U.S. Air Force’s 774th Enterprise Sourcing Squadron.
