Navy awards $88M R&D contract

Booz Allen Hamilton has received a five-year, $88.3 million contract to help the Navy research and develop new technologies across multiple domains in an effort to rapidly get end products to warfighters for immediate operational use.

The initiative supports the Navy's Rapid Capability Engineering and Integration Department, Ship and Air Integrated Warfare Division. Booz Allen was the lone bidder for the contract, the Defense Department said in its Wednesday contracts digest.

Domains covered under the contract include airborne, land-based, mobile sea-based surface and sub-surface systems. Booz Allen could also help work on systems and subsystems used for so-called "C5ISR" technologies -- command, control, communications, computers, cyber, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance.

Additional contractor services will include engineering, quality management, cybersecurity and technical management support services. Work will take place through September 2023.
