Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory will research and develop new sensors in support of the Air Force Research Laboratory under a $49.9 million sole-source contract from the U.S. Air Force.
Johns Hopkins APL will perform sensor R&D activities in Laurel, Maryland, through April 9, 2028, as part of the cost-plus-fixed-fee, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, the Department of Defense said Tuesday.
At the time of award, Air Force is obligating $724,963 from fiscal 2020 and 2021 research, development, test and evaluation funds to cover one initial task order.
AFRL at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio awarded the contract.
The not-for-profit research center works to address research, engineering and analytical issues. It supports national technology development programs.
