Peraton lands $950M Air Force contract
Herndon company to work on branch's Advanced Battle Management System
The U.S. Air Force awarded Herndon-based national security contractor Peraton a $950 million contract to provide services in support of the branch’s Advanced Battle Management System (ABMS), a component of the Department of Defense’s Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2) effort, the company announced Monday.
Under the contract, Peraton will provide services including open systems design as well as software and algorithm development to enable the JADC2, which improves situational awareness, rapid decision making and the ability to direct forces across different domains.
“Peraton looks forward to continue partnering with the Air Force to provide innovative and enabling technologies to put the right information in the right hands at the right time, making U.S. forces and our allies smarter and enabling them to act faster in defense of our national and global security,” Kevin Schweer, Peraton’s vice president of defense research, said in a statement.
This contract is part of a multiple award effort for development and operation for a unified system across all domains, which includes air, land, sea, space, cyber and the electromagnetic spectrum.
“Peraton has a long track record of supporting Air Force innovation and research, and we are proud to have been selected as one of the service’s industry partners in developing the information backbone for the future of joint warfighting,” John Coleman, Peraton’s president of the defense and homeland security sector, said in a statement.
Peraton focuses its work on warfighting domains in space, cyber and intelligence and builds mission capability solutions. The company employs 3,500 people across the U.S. and Canada.
