AIS has been awarded a $28 million contract modification for Full-Spectrum Cyber Capabilities, bringing the overall value of the contract to $74.8 million. The initial objective of this effort, which was awarded in 2019, was to provide the United States Air Force (USAF) with tools and technologies to enable rapid cyber operations.
“We are very pleased to have been awarded this contract modification to Full-Spectrum Cyber Capabilities,” said Salvatore Paladino, Director of Cyber Operations R&D at AIS. “It will allow us to expand the focus of the effort to analyzing and securing cyber embedded systems and devices that comprise the Internet of Things (IoT). We believe this will help achieve USAF objectives and better connect military and civilian systems to improve quality of life, automation and safety on military facilities both at home and abroad.”
This award was initially the result of a competitive acquisition and two offers were received. Work will be completed by AIS through September 2026. The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) Information Directorate, also in Rome, is the contracting authority for the award.
“After years of providing Full-Spectrum Cyber Capabilities to the United States Air Force, AIS has demonstrated that its state-of-the-art tools and technologies for rapid cyber operations are critical to our nation’s cybersecurity infrastructure,” said Senator Schumer. “The Air Force made the right choice when they first awarded this contract to AIS back in 2019, and they are making the right choice again by awarding this $28 million modification to AIS now. This work will strengthen our national security, provide a major boost to the upstate economy and support the Mohawk Valley’s world-class cybersecurity workforce by securing 20 jobs in Rome for years to come. I am proud to support innovative local companies like AIS, and I will never stop fighting to ensure that federal work and jobs are flowing to the Mohawk Valley defense ecosystem.”
