American Science and Engineering has been awarded an indefinite delivery/ indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract from the Department of Defense (DoD) for ruggedized Non-Intrusive Inspection (NII) systems for personnel and cargo screening, and Entry Control Point (ECP) Hardware Sets for deployment at military bases in war-zones. The ECP Hardware Sets will include day/night cameras, command and control stations, environmentally protected work stations, biometric system, barriers, and protective shelters. The award has a three-year base period of performance with two additional option periods, and a potential contract value of up to $248.5 million.
AS&E, as the prime contractor, will lead a team of highly qualified and experienced companies with proven success in delivering and maintaining operational hardware to war zones. AS&E is one of seven awardees for this IDIQ contract issued by the DoD for these NII systems and ECP Hardware sets. The contract awarded to AS&E qualifies AS&E to compete for delivery orders issued by the DoD for specified quantities ordered.
“AS&E has put together a top-notch team with experience and practical understanding of the unique challenges of system integration, deployment, and sustainment in war zones,” said Anthony R. Fabiano, President and CEO of AS&E. “AS&E’s team is committed to provide the most advanced personnel and cargo inspection systems and ECP Hardware Sets to meet the critical requirements of DoD to protect our armed forces. We are delighted AS&E was selected as a prime contractor by the DoD to fulfill this mission.”
