Contractor: Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University
Department: Defense Threat Reduction Agency
Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, Blacksburg, Va., is being awarded a $39,000,000 indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract to utilize the Comprehensive National Incident Management System. This effort will explore, develop, and incorporate methods to combine simulation-generated expectations with evidence from individual noisy and sparse sensor or surveillance information sources, increasing the classification sensitivity of a sensor/surveillance suite; and take complex system state estimates as inputs and support human mediated and/or automatic context-based system-management decision making. This effort will also use high-performance computing and modeling technologies to represent large-scale socio-technological systems; adapt newly emerging technologies and investigate new methods, when necessary, to achieve the desired level of analytical capability; and support reachback, combatant commands, local, state, and first responders. This was a sole-source procurement. Work will be performed at Blacksburg, Va., and the ordering period is through September 2016. The Defense Threat Reduction Agency, Fort Belvoir, Va., is the contracting activity (HDTRA1-11-D-0016).
