Booz Allen to analyze survivability of military systems
By William Welsh
Booz Allen Hamilton Inc. will help the military study the survivability of certain systems and operations under a pair of contracts worth a combined $53.4 million.
Under a $34.5 million contract, Booz Allen will conduct survivability research and development analysis for the European Security Operations Center and the 66th Military Intelligence Group, the Defense Department announced Aug. 14.
Under an $18.9 million contract, the company will provide the Marine Corps with logistics chain survivability analysis, DOD said.
Survivability analysis refers to the ability of a system to continue operating in the face of abnormal events such as failures and intrusions.
Offutt Air Force Base, Neb., is the contracting activity that awarded the work and will oversee the contracts. The company will perform the work on both contracts at its headquarters in McLean, Va.
Booz Allen Hamilton ranks No. 11 on Washington Technology’s 2008 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
