That means the company is eligible to compete for orders under a $900 million ceiling for an array of services — what the business called “approaches that bring multi-domain systems capabilities, the characterization of new technologies and systems through studies, recurrent demonstration and rapid development to enable rapid prototyping” and more.

“The speed of technology development and advancement today means that we need the ability to upgrade and redesign defense systems rapidly and with precision and security,” said Ryan Helbach, the company’s director of business development. “Our deep focus and expertise in component-based engineering, software integration, MOSA, and DevSecOps is well-suited to supporting AFLCMC (Air Force Life Cycle Management Center) in its goals under this ID/IQ.”

“ID/IQ” refers to an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity contract, a contract that offers an indefinite quantity of services for a fixed time.
