Global technical and engineering services firm Amentum has been awarded an $88 million contract to conduct Research, Development, Test and Evaluation, or RDT&E, and other research and development-related analytical services supporting the Electro-Optic Technology Division at Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division.
Amentum received this contract under the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center’s multiple-award contract vehicle. These task orders are awarded by the U.S. Air Force’s 774th Enterprise Sourcing Squadron.

“Amentum will provide a world-class team of subject matter experts to address technology gaps and develop capability enhancements for leading-edge maritime EO/IR technology while simultaneously improving system supportability,” she added.
Under the 5-year, cost-plus-fixed-fee contract, Amentum will provide RDT&E of the next generation of maritime EO/IR solutions for systems, such as lasers, visual augmentation systems, multi-sensor EO/IR targeting systems, weapon sights, beacons, sensors, displays and peripherals for various shipboard gun weapon systems, and situational awareness platforms.
