The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has announced that Booz Allen Hamilton was awarded an analytical business services contract worth up to $31 million to support all programs in DARPA's Information Exploitation Office (IXO).

The IXO's mission is to develop sensor and information technology and systems that apply to battlespace awareness, targeting, command and control (C2), and the infrastructure required to address land-based threats.

The contract, which was awarded Jan. 15, includes support services for planning, monitoring, data collection and analysis, system analysis, evaluation, assessment, and associated documentation of all IXO programs.

"This is not for research on a particular program," a DARPA spokeswoman said. "This is for system analysis, evaluation and assessment for all programs under the IXO."

The IXO has more than 25 ongoing programs, including C2 for the Army's Future Combat System and the Real-Time Battle Damage Assessment Program, which develops techniques to automate the assessment of mobile target battle damage.

The Booz Allen contract contains options that if exercised, would bring the total value to more than $31 million. Work will be performed in Arlington, Va., and is scheduled for completion in January 2008.

Booz Allen declined to comment and referred all requests for information to DARPA.
