Armaments Research Company, Inc. (ARC) has been awarded a new 5-year, $60-million Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase III contract by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and General Services Administration (GSA) supporting multi-branch military applications.
The contract is a continuation of ARC’s artificial intelligence-based weapon-sensing technology development undertaken for the DoD and GSA as part of the military’s Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2) project portfolio.
Current combat environments are fraught with obstacles that challenge ground teams’ abilities to conceptualize line-of-fire dynamics and threat movements. ARC’s proprietary high-tech systems provide National Defense, Law Enforcement, and prime contractors with Embedded Internet-of-Things (IoT) Sensors, Intelligent Mobile Applications, and Cloud-Based Analytics Platforms.
These systems help commanders make mission-critical decisions, reduce tactical response timelines by up to 60%, and ensure the safety and effectiveness of small units on the ground.
“The indefinite delivery indefinite quantity contract represents a pivotal accomplishment that allows us to advance our core tech systems to Initial Operational Capability (IOC) for military use,” says Michael Canty, ARC’s Chief Executive Officer – a thrice combat-deployed former Army Major and recognized Microsoft Sr. Manager.
“We’ll be leveraging findings gained from this effort towards formalizing essential scalable applications that harness critical ground truth data to save lives.”
