Belcan’s Government Services segment has been awarded a five-year prime Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quality (IDIQ) multiple award contract from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA)’s Tactical Technology Office (TTO) in Arlington, VA.
Belcan is one of five companies who will compete for task orders to provide technical, programmatic, financial, and administrative support services for TTO with a total estimated contract amount of $204 million.
The mission of DARPA/TTO is to provide or prevent strategic and tactical surprise with very high-payoff, high-risk development and demonstration of revolutionary new platforms in Ground Systems, Maritime (Surface and Undersea) Systems, Air Systems, and Space Systems.
DARPA/TTO focuses on conceiving, designing, developing, and testing advanced technology platforms that provide U.S. forces with overwhelming tactical and strategic advantage, including vehicles, weapons, and other full-scale, potentially field-deployable systems.

This award is the fourth IDIQ contract Belcan has received from TTO. Schafer Corporation, now a Belcan company, has been a prime contractor for DARPA/TTO since 2006, developing, assessing, and characterizing ideas for new programs.
Belcan and its teammates under this IDIQ, will provide risk and impact assessments of new technologies, development of system concepts, justification for new program implementation, evaluation of benefits to military users, ancillary commercial sector impacts, and support of program definition, financial analyses, and strategies for transition to the Defense Services.
“We are excited and honored to continue our work with DARPA/TTO,” said Denise Kellogg, Vice-President, Technical Advisory Services, Belcan Government Services.
“Our team brings a wide range of technical expertise in science, technology, engineering, integration, and acquisition to support TTO’s mission to stay ahead of adversary and tactical surprises.”
“Belcan’s rich history of six decades of engineering expertise coupled with Schafer’s superior technical advisory services allows us to provide DARPA/TTO with cutting-edge support for new program concepts related to advanced weapon systems, advanced platforms, and advanced space systems,” said Lee Shabe, President, Belcan Government Services.
