DDL OMNI Awarded SBIR Phase III Task Orders to Support NAVAIR and CFFC

McLean, Virginia, September, 28, 2015 – DDL OMNI was recently awarded two task orders under our NAVAIR SBIR Basic Ordering Agreement (BOA).  The BOA was awarded to DDL OMNI in December 2014 to support the continued technical and engineering support of a variety of projects that have potential for the development of additional applications of ARMS and associated products, production, services and research; the BOA provides for awarding individual Task Orders that are derived from, extend or complete work previously performed under the Automated Readiness Measurement System (ARMS) SBIR. 

Task Order 1 was awarded on August 31, 2105 at a value of $10.9M over 3 years and will further the development of ARMS technologies in support of Fleet Forces Command readiness measurements and assessments.  The objective of this effort is to provide technical expertise and readiness analysis as required for the Fleet Training Integration and Planning Support (FTIPS) and key Fleet Training Commands and stakeholders.  ARMS will provide a basis for improvement in process development and reporting among fleet training stakeholders.  This application of ARMS is an extension of work previously conducted under SBIR N00-123.  Successful completion of this work will result in improved synthetic training readiness and the development of efficiencies tailored to specific training requirements.

Task Order 2 was awarded on August 24, 2015 at a value of $5M over 1 base and 2 option years and will support NAVAIR 6.8 and the Naval Aviation Enterprise (NAE) by extending the functionality of ARMS to analyze and evaluate readiness requirements and strategic cost management objectives within the Naval Aviation warfighting domain.  The implementation and support of ARMS will be useful in the analysis of Naval Aviation capabilities, utilization of assets and utilization of best practices.  The ARMS process will assist NAE and NAVAIR 6.8 in the analysis of readiness capabilities in consideration of current fiscal/budget implications and improved analysis techniques that support efficient allocation of resources to meet Naval Aviation readiness objectives.  This effort is to ensure the continued and sustained ability to field an effective and efficient warfighting capability, while considering cost as a significant and driving factor, and to sustain both current and future readiness. 

These Task Orders will be managed from DDL OMNI’s Simulation & Systems Division office in Virginia Beach, VA under the direction of Thomas K. Cole, Vice President. 

 “The award of these Task Orders represents the versatility of our ARMS product and highlights our outstanding capability in the areas of readiness analysis, evaluation, display, and demonstrates the depth of our technical and engineering services expertise.  This SBIR is an important aspect in the growth of DDL OMNI,” said James E. Schaeffer, Chairman, President and CEO.
