Anteon have been awarded a $100M contract by US Air Force to provide technical management support and offer guidance in the development of materials technology.

Anteon, provider of information technology and engineering solutions to the U.S. government, was awarded the Technical Operations Program Support III (TOPS III) contract by the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory, Materials and Manufacturing Directorate (AFRL/ML). The estimated total value of this Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity contract, if all options are exercised, is $99.65 million over six-years.

Anteon will provide the AFRL/ML with technical management services covering all stages of the development life cycle from the research laboratory to systems deployment. These services encompass a quick turnaround capability in acquiring short-term external analyses, as well as technical assessments, specialized testing, strategic studies, workshops and presentations furthering basic and applied research.

Anteon will also support advanced development efforts in core areas of materials technology including polymers, organic matrix composites and laser-hardened materials.

“”In awarding this contract, the Air Force has recognized the value of an experienced and proven management and technical team able to transition technology from the lab through test and evaluation, ultimately meeting today’s military needs,”” said Dan Johnson, chief operating officer of Anteon. “”Our Dayton, Ohio-based Weapons Systems Support team has provided significant technical management expertise at Wright Patterson Air Force Base for more than a decade and we look forward to serving as a primary support contractor to the AFRL/ML for many years to come.””
