Accenture Federal Services has won a contact from the U.S. Air Force to build a modernized and interoperable Advanced Battle Management System. The 5-year indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract has a contract ceiling value of $950 million and five option years.
The deal leverages open systems design, modern software and algorithm development to support the mission of Joint All Domain Command and Control. It’s part of a multiple-award, multilevel security effort to develop and operate systems as a unified force across all domains, including air, land, sea, space, cyber and the electromagnetic spectrum through the use of an open architecture family of systems that powers capabilities across multiple integrated platforms.
AFS looks forward to supporting the Air Force as it develops and implements innovative technologies that connect data across all domains for improved decision-making, said retired Army Lt. Gen. Susan Lawrence, managing director and deputy director of the AFS Defense and Intelligence Portfolio.
“Working with the Air Force to implement the advanced capabilities needed for JADC2, it is important to ensure that our forces have what they need to maximize their effectiveness,” she added.
Scott Sloan, managing director of armed forces growth and strategy at AFS, echoed Lawrence’s sentiments.
“We are excited to team with the US Air Force on the transformative ABMS program and look forward to adding AFS’ expertise in systems integration and open systems design to advance their goal to fully integrate command and control assets,” he said
