AIS has been awarded a $93.6 million Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract, which provides a funding mechanism for any federal government department or agency to award a contract to AIS in a simple, expedited manner, with a ceiling totaling $93.6 million. This contract allows for the performance of research, development, prototyping, integration, testing, demonstration, deployment, upgrades, enhancement, sustainment and training of innovative technologies and concepts in support of Virtualized Intelligence Platform Engineering and Research (VIPER) software baselines.
SecureView®, a team within the Cross-Domain Virtualization Solutions (CDVS) Group at AIS will be performing this work for Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) in Rome, New York.
“I have the utmost respect for AIS’s talented, hardworking and exceptionally intelligent SecureView® team and I am pleased they won the VIPER contract,” said John Woodruff, SecureView® Program Manager at AFRL/RIEBA. “I don’t think there’s anyone else that could perform the extremely difficult SecureView® development as well as AIS has and continues to do. I’m really looking forward to the next 5+ years of continued excellence working with AIS on this project.”
“We’re excited to continue supporting AFRL in making SecureView® a success,” said Adam Hovak, Operations Manager of the CDVS Group at AIS. “Without the dedication of the SecureView® team and its commitment to excellence, successes like this wouldn’t be possible. This contract will allow SecureView to continue reaching its full potential.”
Work is expected to be complete by April 2026.
“I’m thrilled that AIS has earned this contract to continue their critical cyber technology work at AFRL,” said Congressman Anthony Brindisi. “This contract will support good jobs and I’m confident the Department of Defense and the Mohawk Valley economy will benefit greatly as a result.”
“This federal contract is further proof that the partnership between local workforces at AFRL and AIS is a match made in heaven,” said U.S. Senator Charles Schumer. “AIS has proven time and time again that it can produce superior technology for the United States government, so it’s no surprise that the Air Force picked them for this important work. Local partnerships like these are why I make it a top priority to increase funding for AFRL during budget negotiations – they enhance our nation’s cyber security, support good-paying jobs and boost the Mohawk Valley’s economy.”
“AIS continues to play an important role in the national mission of cyber operations and this award further solidifies the important work they are performing to support AFRL,” said City of Rome Mayor Jacqueline M. Izzo. “AIS has grown steadily from a handful of employees to more than 300 with approximately 180 highly skilled people working at the Rome headquarters. They have recently expanded company operations at the Griffiss Business and Technology Park, and we applaud them for their commitment to Griffiss and the City of Rome.”
