Perspecta Inc. has been awarded a potential four-year, $237 million Other Transaction Agreement (OTA) from the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command to deliver the Army Training Information System (ATIS), the company reported on Wednesday.
"As a leader in digital strategy and transformation, we are committed to bringing the most innovative solutions to our customers in order to enable mission success," said Jeff Bohling, senior vice president and general manager of the defense business group at Perspecta.
The fixed-price award is for Phase II of the ATIS program. Perspecta will support the development, integration, delivery, operation and maintenance of an enterprise capability for Army training and education information.
Perspecta will integrate its solution that consolidates 28 legacy systems, implements proven processes and migrates data into a single-entry, integrated, cloud-based system. The company’s solution will provide the Army with a real-time understanding of combat readiness with reduced cost and complexity.
"This award is a testament to our success during Phase I of the program, and we look forward to bringing this new capability to life in support of the Army's readiness goals," Bohling added.
Perspecta successfully completed Phase I of the ATIS program in 2019 where the company delivered a prototype of its ATIS solution. Perspecta included Fox, a commercial-off-the-shelf software from Britannica Knowledge Systems.
The company has also received a potential five-year, $14.5 million contract to further support the U.S. Army in April 2020. Under the contract, Perspecta will support the service branch’s develop a set of autonomous, configurable cyber technologies.
Perspecta will design, build and test a defense-tailored machine learning technology for use in cyber threat detection under the Autonomous Defensive Cyber Operations program. The company will leverage its Learning Using Privileged Information machine learning paradigm that allows sensors to operate in environments with a wide variety of threats.
Army Combat Capabilities Development Command launched the program to address the need for light-weight, autonomous tools that facilitate the training and deployment of cybersecurity platforms.
