MacB Partners on Advanced Simulation Technology Contract for AFRL
DAYTON, Ohio — MacAulay-Brown Inc. (MacB), a leading national security company delivering advanced engineering services, cybersecurity and product solutions, announced in a Nov. 13 release that it has partnered with Engility Corp. on a single award Indefinite-Delivery, Indefinite-Quantity contract supporting the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) Munitions Directorate.
It will provide research and development (R&D) for the Kinetic Kill Hardware-in-the-Loop Simulation Technology for Advanced Research program, which was established to help the government assess concepts for high-end, next-generation weapon systems. The work will be performed at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla., over a five-year period.
Engineering experts from MacB’s Mission Systems Group (MSG) will work with Engility on the development of multi-spectral and other advanced modeling capabilities, radar signal processing, integrated projector and scene generation technologies, and R&D of virtual simulation environments. MacB senior engineers will also provide the necessary requirements and design support for concept seeker hardware, and be instrumental in performing seeker phenomenology research and evaluation.
“We’ve been supporting this customer and their mission for more than 18 years,” said Fred Norman, MacB’s senior vice president and general manager of MSG, “so this recompete award represents the government and our team’s continued commitment and advanced work on Hardware-in-the-Loop test technology, and our critical role in the research, development and transition of Air Force munitions through the use of integrated guidance simulation.”
