    The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has announced that Booz
    Allen Hamilton was awarded an analytical business services contract
    worth up to $31 million to support all programs in DARPA's Information
    Exploitation Office (IXO).
    The IXO's mission is to develop sensor and information technology and
    systems that apply to battlespace awareness, targeting, command and
    control (C2), and the infrastructure required to address land-based
    The contract, which was awarded Jan. 15, includes support services for
    planning, monitoring, data collection and analysis, system analysis,
    evaluation, assessment, and associated documentation of all IXO
    "This is not for research on a particular program," a DARPA
    spokeswoman said. "This is for system analysis, evaluation and
    assessment for all programs under the IXO."
    The IXO has more than 25 ongoing programs, including C2 for the Army's
    Future Combat System and the Real-Time Battle Damage Assessment
    Program, which develops techniques to automate the assessment of
    mobile target battle damage.
    The Booz Allen contract contains options that if exercised, would
    bring the total value to more than $31 million. Work will be performed
    in Arlington, Va., and is scheduled for completion in January 2008.
    Booz Allen declined to comment and referred all requests for
    information to DARPA.
