Battelle is part of a contract team that has won three U.S. Transportation Department contracts potentially worth $115 million combined to develop technology and provide traffic management support services.
The nonprofit organization said the team has the right to bid on all work with DOT’s Federal Highway Administration, won through a recompete, for three base years and a two-year option.
Under a $68, 851, 836 contract, the team will develop new applications and methods for using technology, connectivity and wireless communications and study how they affect transportation.
A $33, 658, 663 contract covers support services for transportation management and operations, with the goal of addressing traffic congestion and driver safety without building new roads and highways.
The third contract, potentially worth $12, 193, 622, calls on the team to develop methods for recovering from roadway disasters, develop performance measurements and facilitate coordination between DOT and first responders.
Battelle also holds a spot on a potential $1.9 billion design and engineering contract with the Air Force to develop prototypes and provide the branch limited production runs.
