ARLINGTON, Va., 2 Oct. 2009. Stanley Inc., a provider of systems integration and professional services to the U.S. federal government, won a five-year, single-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract with a $64 million ceiling by the U.S. Army to support the Aviation and Missile Research, Development, and Engineering Center (AMRDEC) in the development of Advanced-Capability Insensitive Munition Warheads.
"Stanley is proud to continue our support of AMRDEC to enhance the performance of systems in the field," says Scott Hill, Stanley vice president. "We look forward to providing the warfighter with these innovative technologies to better meet their missions around the world."
AMRDEC provides technology solutions for U.S. soldiers and military worldwide. This award sustains the Army technology objective for smaller, lighter, cheaper munitions components, which seeks to integrate multi-purpose, insensitive munition-compliant warheads that will efficiently defeat armor, fortified structures, and personnel, says a company representative.
The technologies developed under this contract will result in improved performance of current missile systems against future threats, improve insensitive munitions response to threats, and allow munitions to provide effects against a wide variety of threats, continues a representative.
