Applied Research Associates Incorporated, Albuquerque, New Mexico, was recently awarded a potential $11 million contract for requirements analysis for human injury and treatment modeling tools. The contractor will determine the requirements and identify scenarios for use in demonstrating a computer modeling tool for predicting human injury incapacitation, and medical response requirements associated with blast attacks in shipboard environments. The Office of Naval Research, Arlington, Virginia, is the contracting activity.
3 Phoenix Incorporated, Fairfax, Virginia, is being awarded a $14 million modification to previously awarded contract to provide engineering services to support software development, procurement of commercial off-the-shelf products, and hardware/software integration in support of Navy submarine and surface ship systems. This effort is for Phase III of a Small Business Innovative Research topic, "Real-time Data Fusion and Visualization Interface for Environmental Research Data." These services will be rendered as needed to support the Navy's initiative to maintain the pace of performance improvement through judicious use of lower power electronics, advanced algorithm design, and innovative applications of open software and hardware. This requirement includes system engineering, architecture design, software engineering, prototyping, integration, and test activities. The Naval Sea Systems Command, Washington, D.C., is the contracting activity.
AT&T Mobility Limited Liability Corporation, Hanover, Maryland; Sprint-Nextel, Reston, Virginia; T-Mobile USA Incorporated, Bellevue, Washington; and Verizon Wireless, Laurel, Maryland, are each being awarded a multiple award task order contract to provide wireless service and devices to the Navy. The maximum dollar value, including the base period and one six-month option period, for all four contracts combined is $96 million. These four contractors may compete for task orders under the terms and conditions of the awarded contract. The Fleet and Industrial Supply Center, San Diego, California, is the contracting activity.
Woolpert Incorporated, Dayton, Ohio, was recently awarded a nearly $15 million contract to provide for the investigation of capability enhancements, including higher-flying platforms, improved imagery resolution and accuracy, improved processing and sensor payloads for improved collection rates. Work is to be performed in Arlington and Alexandria, Virginia, and in Afghanistan. The U.S. Army Geospatial Center, Contracting Office, Alexandria, is the contracting activity.
Lockheed Martin Corporation, Orlando, Florida, recently received a more than $48 million contract to provide logistical support for the AH-64 Apache modernized and legacy target acquisition designation sight assembly and pilot night vision sensor assembly system. This includes repair and maintenance of line replaceable units and line replaceable modules to support the Apache's sensors flying hours program. The U.S. Army Aviation & Missile Command Contracting Center, Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, is the contracting activity.
L-3 Communications Corporation, Salt Lake City, Utah, was recently awarded an $8 million contract to provide for radio frequency B-kit communications hardware to support the Kiowa Warrior OH-58D program. The U.S. Army Contracting Command, Aviation and Missile Command Contracting Center, Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, is the contracting activity.
L-3 Communications System West, Salt Lake City, Utah, was recently awarded a nearly $32 million contract to provide for 2,780 remote operational video enhanced receiver 6 antenna kits. The U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command, Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, is the contracting activity.
Lockheed Martin Mission Systems and Sensors, Owego, New York, is being awarded a $35 million delivery order against a previously issued basic ordering agreement for non-recurring efforts in support of the MH-60R situational awareness technology insertion pre-engineering, manufacturing and development. The Naval Air Systems Command, Patuxent River, Maryland, is the contracting activity.
Alion Science and Technology has recently been awarded a $1 million contract to lead a modeling and simulation research effort that could help enhance the field of prosthetic limbs for wounded soldiers. The 18-month, U.S. Army Medical Research Acquisition Activity will explore affordable and improved approaches in bringing robotic control technology to the field of prosthetic limbs. Alion will develop a protocol and modeling tool for robotic, upper limb prosthetics that may lead to the development of an affordable, lightweight, prosthetic device that is more functional to the amputee, more power-efficient and has an extended battery life. The program is designed to augment and accelerate the development of implantable electronic sensors and the development and application of virtual prototyping simulation models, which will ultimately help the amputee better control the prosthetic. Since 2003, 1,145 soldiers serving in Iraq and Afghanistan have had a limb amputated.
