The U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory Aerospace Systems Directorate (AFRL/RQ) awarded ARCTOS Technology Solutions (ARCTOS) the follow-on, $96 million indefinite delivery indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract supporting the Research Enabling Procurement for Aerospace Systems (REPAS) program.
Formerly Universal Technology Corporation (UTC), ARCTOS has supported the AFRL/RQ for over 50 years. Based in Dayton, Ohio, ARCTOS is one of two awardees on the eight-year IDIQ contract and received five of the six competed task orders included with award.
“We’re excited to continue being part of the AFRL community and contributing to the evolution of propulsion and power technology,” said Joe Sciabica, ARCTOS CTO and vice president of Technology Solutions. “Our relationship with AFRL/RQ is longstanding and continues to be a point of pride for the ARCTOS team. ”
As the prime contractor, ARCTOS provides propulsion and power technologies research and development (R&D) to the AFRL/RQ at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. Key services include R&D lifecycle efforts focused on air breathing propulsion; electrical power generation and energy conversion; and energy storage and thermal management technologies for integration into Department of Defense (DoD) systems.
