It was expected to be worth nearly $1 billion over the next eight years and the new National Air and Space Intelligence Center support contract seems to be living up to the hype.
To date, officials tell me more than $50 million in work has been issued to the three winners since NASIC began using the contract — called ATEP II — about six months ago.
Knowing where the money is flowing is key to understanding what companies, and their many subcontractors, will be in growth mode. Much of the work is expected to be done in the Dayton region, as NASIC is headquartered at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.
McLean, Va.-based IT firm Altamira Technologies, Inc., which has a Fairborn office, took the top spot with $31.1 million in work. Of the 15 orders it has won, Altamira earned nine for analytics and operational support, five for research and tool development, and one has been for general support. Its partners include Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp. — one of the winners on the original Advanced Technical Exploitation Program contract — as well as local firms JJR Solutions in Beavercreek, Fairborn-based The Design Knowledge Co., Dayton-based Quantrum LLC and Beavercreek-based MacAulay-Brown Inc.
