Vencore Inc. has been awarded a $6.4 million task order to continue work on a U.S. Air Force nuclear detonation detection and analysis system.
Vencore has supported the Air Force’s nuclear detection mission readiness and treaty verification efforts since 2011, working to improve standoff detection, multisensor platform correlation, situational awareness, analysis, diagnostics, forensics and systems engineering.
The new task order continues that work, through the U.S. Air Force Technical Applications Center Expert Scientific and Analytical Support program. The work will be performed in Melbourne, Florida.
Under the task order, Vencore will continue the system development of the AFTAC Modular Optimized Operations System. MOOS, currently being developed by Vencore, will replace the existing AFTAC Nuclear Detonation Detection System Analysis System.
Vencore also supports the research and development of future systems and other advanced detection technologies to meet the evolving operational mission requirements for monitoring treaties and other customer-directed technology applications.
Vencore recently made moves toward going public, filing a registration statement on Form S-1 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
