An HII (NYSE: HII) business unit will help the U.S. Army Research Laboratory develop, test and evaluate defense systems under a five-year, $94 million task order.
HII Mission Technologies will conduct R&D of sensors, weapons and other combat systems for use by mission partners of the Department of Defense, the company said Monday.
The parent organization, which has supported Army Research Laboratory programs since September 2016, secured the new task through the DOD Information Analysis Center’s multiple-award contract.
“Providing research, rapid prototyping and solutions development that address technology gaps is critical to enhancing mission capability and maintaining decisive advantage over adversaries,” said Garry Schwartz, president of HII Mission Technologies’ C5ISR business group.
ARL’s facility in Adelphi, Maryland, and a company-run operations center in Syracuse, New York, are the work locations.
