Dayton Firm to Assist AFRL in Evaluating Hardened Materials
Dayton, OH, 30 Oct 2015
UES is pleased to announce that we are one of three winners for MaRSS, a AFRL/RXAP contract. The contract value is $121.1million, distributed among the winners over a 6 year technical performance period. This is a successor contract to RXAP’s Hardened Materials Research & Survivability Studies (HMRSS) contract that UES was also a key contributor on.
The MARSS contract covers five technology areas in dynamic fields such as hardened materials, survivability and photonic materials technology advancement. The advanced research that UES performs in these areas is expected to complement other ongoing research efforts in AFRL’s mission, as well.
Rob Hull, Director of UES’ Photonic and Electronic Technologies Division and program manager on this contract, adds: “Winning this contract complements the effort we already have with other survivability contracts at WPAFB, and provides UES with another means of supporting this critical mission of AFRL.” Dean Brown, principal investigator for MaRSS, looks to the future. “Transition from current research by UES into MaRSS research will be seamless. At UES, we pride ourselves on being RXAP’s technical partner, working side by side in the laboratory and in the field to advance photonic materials research.”

Dr. Nina Joshi, CEO, shared that UES has been successful, in part, due to its unique strengths. “UES is not just a pass-through organization supplying only subcontracted support; we are fellow researchers. Our strong research capabilities both on base and at our corporate laboratories make our selection as a MaRSS contractor a low risk, best value decision” , she adds. “We’re honored to be a partner in this effort, and we are committed to this program’s success.”
