Dynamics Research Corp., or DRC, an Andover firm that provides technology consulting services to government clients, said it is one of four companies sharing a $50 million Pentagon contract that aims to extend the lifespan of equipment used by US military personnel.
In the era of sequestration, the name given to automatic federal budget cuts, government agencies are challenged to fulfill their missions with limited resources. To cope with less funding, the Pentagon is looking to extend the lifespan of equipment by focusing on preventing corrosion.
With that goal in mind, the Pentagon’s Office of Corrosion Policy and Oversight has awarded a five-year contract to a group of companies that includes DRC.
“We are pleased to be expanding our services within the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics,” DRC chairman and chief executive Jim Regan said in a statement. “The Corrosion Prevention and Mitigation Program is a key Department of Defense initiative aimed at extending the lifecycle of equipment, systems, and infrastructure.”
