Air Force Taps Pivotal for $100M Software Experimentation Lab Support OTA

Pivotal Software (NYSE: PVTL) will support production efforts at the U.S. Air Force’s Kessel Run Experimentation Lab under a one-year, $100.1M other transaction agreement.

The company will provide prototyping methods, software and services for the military branch’s enterprise architectures, the Department of Defense said Wednesday.

Work under the OTA runs through Dec. 18, 2019, and is a follow-on to Pivotal’s previous contract with Army Contracting Command-New Jersey.

The Air Force will initially obligate $10.6M in fiscal 2019 operations and maintenance funds and another $764,500 in fiscal 2018 research, development, test and evaluation funds.

KREL opened in May to provide a collaborative workspace for service members, civilians and contractors to develop combat software platforms.
