The U.S. Air Force has awarded Assured Information Security a potential $95 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for the third phase of its development of an enterprise-scale system that uses antifragile concepts to execute the enterprise software.
Under the Antifragility Workstation for Resiliency effort, the Rome, New York-based company will expand the antifragility techniques built in the previous two phases of the Small Business Innovation Research initiative, the Department of Defense said Thursday.
The single-award contract will also cover the application of AIS’ experience, technologies and strategies to strengthen the operational cyber capabilities of the USAF and partnering combatant commands.
Work performance will occur in Rome, New York, through Sept. 30, 2026.
AIS will receive $5,000 from the fiscal 2021 research, development, test and evaluation funds and $14.5 million from the operations and maintenance budget at the time of the award.
DOD indicated that the Air Force Research Laboratory contracted AIS through a competitive acquisition following the AWARE SBIR Phase I and Phase II awards.
