UES has won a potential six-year, $42 million contract from the U.S. Air Force to research and develop advanced materials for electronic, magnetic and electro-optical applications.
The Defense Department said Tuesday that UES will help the Air Force Research Laboratory produce materials the service branch can use to update digital, radio frequency, radar, infrared detector, opto-electronic, communications, power generation, sensing and control systems as part of the Nanoelectronic Materials Optimization initiative.
Work will occur at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and a company facility in Ohio through Sept. 30, 2022.
The Air Force Research Laboratory received nine offers for the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract and obligated $137,807 for the first order at the time of award.
Dayton, Ohio-based UES is a women-owned company that supports commercial and government partners through scientific, technical and research services.
