Booz Allen to Operate Air Force Survivability, Vulnerability Center

Booz Allen Hamilton has won a $14,945,646 Air Force contract for information analysis center work, the Defense Department announced Thursday.

The government contracting and consulting firm will support research and development on risk, vulnerability and system prototypes.

Wright-Patterson Air Force Base is the contracting activity on the indefinite-delivery, requirements, cost-plus-fixed-fee contract.

The Pentagon expects the work in McLean, Va. to finish by Feb. 28, 2015.

Intelligent Decisions also announced today that it is opening an R&D center in Huntsville, Ala. to support regional missile, space and defense activities.

ID recently won an award to support an engineering center in the area, which supports UAS and ISR operations.

The office is part of a plan to expand operations in the northern part of that state and is based off other similar properties in Flordia and Ohio, according to President and CEO Harry Martin.

Wilbur “Bo” Parker will lead office operations and has spent 30 years in the science and technology industries.
