McCrone, Schafer Land Contracts to Support Air Force Nuclear Treaty Monitoring Mission

nuclear-explosionMcCrone Associates and Schafer Vallecitos Laboratories have received a pair of potential eight-year contracts to provide non-personal services for the U.S. Air Force’s technical applications center.

The military branch awarded McCrone a potential $91 million cost-plus-fixed-fee contract and Schafer a $90 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, the Defense Department said Monday.

Both contractors will work to analyze and process particle samples in support of the nuclear treaty monitoring operation of the Air Force Technical Applications Center.

Work will occur at the companies’ facilities in Illinois and California through Sept. 30, 2024 under the sole-source contracts.

The Headquarters Air Combat Command Acquisition Management and Integration Center will obligate $8.3 million each from the service branch’s fiscal 2017 operations and maintenance funds at the time of award, according to DoD.

AFTAC works to detect and report technical data related to foreign nuclear explosions and is responsible for the operation and maintenance of the U.S. Atomic Energy Detection Systems, a network of at least 3, 600 sensors worldwide designed to detect nuclear events.
