SCRA-Managed Alliance Awarded $700M for Ordnance Tech Development; Chris Van Metre Comments

ArmyC5ISRAn SCRA-managed consortium has closed a seven-year, $700 million transaction agreement with the U.S. Army to prototype and develop rapid ordnance technology for the nation’s warfighters.

The National Armaments Consortium is comprised of more than 250 contractors and academic organizations and the OTA is a follow-on to two earlier awards worth $1.22 billion, SCRA said Monday.

The Army Contracting Command-New Jersey executed the agreement on behalf of the Department of Defense Ordnance Technology Consortium, a joint venture between DoD and NAC.

Chris Van Metre, SCRA applied R&D president, said the collaboration’s goal is to build systems for battlefield operations.

NAC hosted a two-day forum earlier this month in Whippany, N.J. for industry, government and academic organizations to exchange armament R&D ideas.

SCRA says the other consortia it manages build maritime platforms, composites and advanced materials, software applications, vertical lifts and interoperable agency systems.
