ANSER Subsidiary Enters Cooperative Deal with AFRL-Sponsored Consortium

Advanced Technology International, an Analytical Services (ANSER) subsidiary, has inked a cooperative deal with a U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory-sponsored consortium which created a collaborative contract vehicle worth a potential $333 million.

ANSER said Thursday the Metals Affordability Initiative was established to consolidate resources within the government and industry in a push to cut costs and streamline the establishment of an airframe, space and turbine parts supplier base.

MAI has supported the integration of more than 50 technologies into aerospace systems of the Air Force and Defense Department including the Apache, C-17, C-40, C-130, E-2, F-15, F-16, F/A-18, F-22, F-35, Global Hawk, KC-135, P-8 and V-22 aircraft.

The consortium has also helped develop other technologies and combat systems including microsatellites, small-diameter bombs, the Mars reconnaissance orbiter and the Orion spacecraft.
