Belcan announced today that its Government Services segment has been awarded a five-year prime Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quality (IDIQ) multiple award contract from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA)’s Tactical Technology Office (TTO) in Arlington, VA.
Belcan is one of five companies who will compete for task orders to provide technical, programmatic, financial, and administrative support services for TTO with a total estimated contract amount of $204 million. The mission of DARPA/TTO is to provide or prevent strategic and tactical surprise with very high-payoff, high-risk development and demonstration of revolutionary new platforms in Ground Systems, Maritime (Surface and Undersea) Systems, Air Systems, and Space Systems.
This award is the fourth IDIQ contract Belcan has received from TTO. Schafer Corporation, now a Belcan company, has been a prime contractor for DARPA/TTO since 2006, developing, assessing, and characterizing ideas for new programs.
Under this IDIQ, Belcan and its teammates will provide risk and impact assessments of new technologies, development of system concepts, justification for new program implementation, evaluation of benefits to military users and ancillary commercial sector impacts, and support of program definition, financial analyses, and strategies for transition to the Defense Services.
“We are excited and honored to continue our work with DARPA/TTO,” said Denise Kellogg, Vice-President, Technical Advisory Services, Belcan Government Services. “Our team brings a wide range of technical expertise in science, technology, engineering, integration, and acquisition to support TTO’s mission to stay ahead of adversary and tactical surprises.”
