The United States Strategic Command has awarded a contract to MacAulay-Brown (MacB) to support its Training, Exercise and Experimentation Services (TE2S) Test and Integration Facility (TIF), according to a MacB press release dated Monday.
MacB will deliver advisory and assistance services as well as evaluation support for the TIF’s various experimentation efforts regarding Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) and Government Off-The-Shelf (GOTS) products for potential use within USSTRATCOM. Specifically, the company will deliver scheduling, project planning, information assurance and assorted technology support to shepherd new capability prototyping and testing.
