Team ACET (Adams Communication & Engineering Technology) and its partner, Gemedy (an AI software company), have been selected by the Department of Defense to supply technical services for its Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) Information Analysis Center.
Here is an excerpt from a report published by the Associated Press:
The multiple-award, Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (ID/IQ) contract has a $28 billion ceiling and a maximum nine-year period of performance. As part of Pool 1, Team ACET will provide DTIC with research, development, test, and evaluation (RDT&E) and other research and development (R&D)-related analytical services to support the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines Corps and other Department of Defense (DoD) and U.S. Government customers.
“This considerable award recognizes Gemedy’s leadership in applying state-of-the-art artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques to problems in national defense,” said Dr. Alex Wissner-Gross, President and Chief Scientist of Gemedy. “We look forward to serving both existing and new customers in the Department of Defense through this opportunity.”
The mission of the Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) is to provide essential, technical research, development, testing, and evaluation (RDT&E) information rapidly, accurately, and reliably to support DoD customers’ needs. Organizationally, embedded within DTIC are the Information Analysis Centers (IAC), which are structured into two principal components: 1) three Basic Centers of Operations (BCO) and 2) three IAC Multiple Award Contracts (MAC), each of the three focused on either Cyber, Defense Systems, or Homeland Security.
