Dayton, OH, 24 Sept 2016
The US AFRL, long a home of world-class scientific efforts, has been recently extending the scope of its efforts. There is a renewed focus on the timely and cost-effective translation of promising basic research into designs, and developing solutions for broadly defined military needs. In recognition of this evolving domain, AFRL's Materials and Manufacturing Directorate has selected UES Inc. as a winner of the $43.75million, 8-year Technical OPerations Support V (TOPS-V) contract.
UES will provide technical support under this contract in the areas of Functional Materials and Applications, Structural Materials and Applications, Manufacturing and Industrial Technologies, Systems Support, and New and Emerging Technology in Materials and Manufacturing.
“We at UES are proud to support this mission-critical work,” says Rick Weddle, Director of Contracts at UES. “This award highlights our technical achievements under previous TOPS contracts and allows UES to continue our transition of laboratory research and development concepts to meet future Warfighter needs.”
The eight year contract will position UES as a core partner to AFRL as it drives the increasingly important mission of developing new materials and processes. Through this contract, UES will provide a wide variety of services, through rapid response task orders of various magnitudes. The TOPS-V award builds on UES’ existing relationship with AFRL, as the firm continues to be one of the premier providers of scientific and technological services.
“This win is a testament not only to the consistently high quality work our firm has delivered for our customers, but also to the fact that UES, with our cross-disciplinary and proactive approach to technology can excel in this envioronment”, says Nina Joshi, CEO. “Through the life of this IDIQ we will assist AFRL not only in basic science, but also where indicated, make the transition into the design and development phase.”
