IT Mentor Group Wins Air Force CBRN Tactical Edge Contract

The $19M contract supports the Air Force Research Laboratory’s Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) Survivability Program.

IT Mentor Group, Inc. has been awarded a $19,273,659 Cost Plus Fixed-Fee contract for “Chemical Biological Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) Tactical Edge Targeting. 

This contract provides for research, development, and demonstration of CBRN threat mitigation and defeat capabilities. 

This award is the result of a competitive White Paper submitted under Open Advanced Research Announcement (ARA) FA8650-18-S-6002: AFRL Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) Survivability Program. 

About the CBRN Survivability Program

The program will enable the fulfillment of the Air Force Research Laboratory’s (AFRL) responsibility to the Air Force Material Command (AFMC) Commander to assist system, command, and joint program offices with research and development, modeling and simulation, experimentation, testing, technology demonstrations, and analysis related to CBRN Survivability to mitigate the evolving CBRN threat environment that faces US and allied forces around the world.

The program has five objectives:

  • Research, develop, and test counter-CBRN Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities to address Combatant Command-derived requirements
  • Advance CBRN survivability decision making capabilities through novel, dynamic methodologies which leverage DoD CBRN resources allowing globally deployed forces to better employ CBRN resources consistent with geographic factors and regional threats
  • Enhance the CBRN survivability of aircraft and other mission critical systems through the development of innovative chemical-biological survivability methodologies and capabilities
  • Promote airman and warfighter performance and survivability through the development of CBRN survivability decision aids as well as aircrew and weapon system chemical, biological, and radiological protection capabilities
  • Research and develop agile, rapid, and operational decontamination methods to address the challenges airman face when constrained to sustain operations in CB environments

The work under this contract is expected to be completed by October 2028.
