Jeff Brody

Four companies have secured positions on a potential seven-year, $427M contract to provide software baselines for the U.S. Air Force’s Global Application Research, Development, Engineering and Maintenance program.

Contractors will compete for research, development, integration, testing, modification, demonstration, deployment, maintenance and enhacement task orders under the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract,  the Department of Defense said Monday.

The Air Force Research Laboratory received four offers for the GARDEM program and the service branch will obligate $88,165 at the time of award.

AFRL sought industry partners to build a software toolkit intended to help users visualize general data, analyze infrastructure, generate reports, manage workflow, perform query/search functions and report incidents.

The awardees are:

  • American Systems
  • Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE: BAH)
  • General Dynamics’ (NYSE: GD) information technology business
  • Polaris Alpha, now part of Parsons

DoD expects contract work to be complete by Sept. 16, 2026.
