Dayton defense contractor celebrates $56M+ in contract wins

Work on Air Force, DHA and VA contracts began last year.



Downtown Dayton defense contractor JJR Solutions is celebrating a series of government contract wins.

Recent contracts with the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Defense Health Agency and the 509 Bomb Wing Innovation office are valued together at more than $56 million, said David Judson, chief executive of JJR.

The contracts “allow us to increase our support to nonprofits doing important work in Dayton and beyond,” Judson said.



Stealthwerx, the 509 Bomb Wing Innovation Office at Whiteman Air Force Base, part of the Air Force Global Strike Command, selected JJR Solutions and its subcontractor Silotech Group for a one-year flight operations aircrew scheduling and training tool contract, a contract that will use the Salesforce Customer Relationship Management platform, JJR said recently.

“We’re grateful for this opportunity to develop a modern, user-friendly aircrew scheduling tool specific to the 509 BW’s needs and scalable for the larger Air Force,” said JJR Program Manager Wally Abdallah.

Also, JJR Solutions has been selected by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Veterans Experience Office to support work that is meant to improve the VA’s overall customer and employee experiences.

“Ultimately this work will enable VA to provide the highest quality experience for veterans and their families who need care, benefits, and memorial services, and that’s something very important to our team,” Judson said.

Work on both contracts began in September.

Also of recent note: The Defense Health Agency hired JJR Solutions and its Falls Church, Va.-based partner Cognosante for a base-plus-option-year contract supporting the agency’s response to U.S. government personnel and families affected by a mysterious array of physical ailments known as “emerging threats.”

JJR has more than 100 employees nationwide, with about half of them in th Dayton area.
