Amentum Wins Contract Supporting the Navy's Atlantic Undersea Research
A global technical and engineering services firm based in Germantown has won a Federal contract worth nearly half a billion dollars.
While it’s not as large as the record-breaking $28 billion Department of Energy contract it won last year, the new $462 million contract is still another big win for Amentum, which is quickly becoming one of the largest Federal contractors in the D.C. area.
The contract will last 10-years, and it is designed to support the Atlantic Undersea Test and Evaluation Center (AUTEC). It’s the Navy's large-area, deep-water, undersea test and evaluation range. AUTEC conducts activities such as underwater research, testing and evaluation of anti-submarine weapons, and sonar tracking and communications. Amentum will help support those operations through the contract.
“Amentum is pleased to have been awarded this contract in support of AUTEC, and we look forward to working with the Navy, our partners and other stakeholders to ensure the success of the test and training mission at this unique range,” said John Vollmer, Chief Executive Officer of Amentum.
Amentum support will also include program management and business operations services; security; program documentation; safety and environmental support; public works and base services, logistics support; test scheduling, planning and execution; air and marine services; and data acquisition, processing and analysis.
Work will be performed internationally at Andros Island in the Bahamas, and domestically in West Palm Beach, Fla.
Amentum has grown to employee 37,000 people in all 50 states and conducts operations in 105 foreign countries and territories.
