AIS receives $49.9M military contract


Assured Information Security (AIS) of Rome has been awarded a $49.9 million cost-plus-fixed-fee completion contract through the Air Force for the Dauntless Cyber Platform/Prototype, AIS announced in conjunction with U.S. Sen. Charles E. Schumer, D-NY.

The contract involves “research, development, integration, testing, evaluation and transition of new and emergent technologies that improve mission coordination, advance the capabilities of cyberspace operations in an array of environments and better equip the warfighter,” the announcement said.

“The Dauntless effort presents an exciting opportunity to continue our partnership with the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) and its partnering combatant commands to provide innovative research, produce robust capabilities and address real challenges in the mission space of the 16th Air Force,” said Salvatore Paladino, Director of Account Management at AIS. “This work will have a measurable and powerful impact by giving our nation a revolutionary advantage in cyberspace.”

The award is the result of a competitive acquisition with two offers received, said AIS. Work will be performed in Rome and is expected to be completed by March 2024. The AFRL in Rome, also known as Rome Lab, is the contracting authority for the award.

“The AIS-Rome Lab partnership has proven time and time again that it can produce superior services and products for the Department of Defense, so it’s no surprise that the Air Force once again chose them for this important work,” said Schumer. “I will continue to work with AIS to bring more federal work — and more jobs — to the Mohawk Valley through partnerships like these.”

AIS has more than 300 employees, including about 175 in Rome, and nine U.S. locations.
