MCLEAN, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
The U.S. armed forces have a long and distinguished history of driving
innovative research that has transformed both military and civilian
life. Since its inception in 1958, the Defense Advanced Research
Projects Agency (DARPA) has been at the forefront of strengthening U.S.
national security through technological advances. To ensure our troops
continue to be equipped with the latest technology needed to combat
today's critical security issues, DARPA's Defense Sciences Office (DSO)
has awarded Booz Allen Hamilton a spot on a $120 million Indefinite
Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract. Booz Allen will provide
scientific, engineering and technical assistance to support DARPA's
research and development programs.
"Booz Allen has been a trusted partner to DARPA and DSO for more than 25
years," said Angela Wallace, Booz Allen vice president and leader of the
firm's Engineering team. "In the coming years, we're going to continue
our collaboration with the agency as it works to address a number of
evolving trends, such as the rapidly changing nature of warfare and
opponent capabilities, the increasing complexity of the systems and
systems-of-systems being developed, and the blending of traditional
soldiers and tactics with machines and robotics."
Under the new five-year contract, Booz Allen is going to provide
assistance across the full program life cycle, from initial conception
through planning to implementation, by delivering technical,
programmatic, financial and administrative services. Booz Allen brings a
highly qualified and experienced team to this work, including:
Technical staff from leading academic institutions with expertise in
physics, chemistry, materials, engineering, social sciences and
Administrative professionals with experience in DARPA policies,
procedures and operations.
A strong network across relevant user and stakeholder communities.
