UES has won a potential $22 million contract to help U.S. Air Force researchers study the characteristics of aerospace materials.
The company will develop methods, software and tools to aid materials characterization and microanalysis research related to electron, ion, x-ray and optical microscopy, the Defense Department said Tuesday.
DoD noted that contract work will run through April 3, 2023.
The Air Force Research Laboratory received two offers for the cost-plus-fixed-fee contract and the service branch obligated $238,550 in fiscal 2017 research and development funds at the time of award.
