Ideal Innovations, Inc., a veteran-owned firm specializing in forensics, biometrics, integrated security systems and force protection has been awarded the Base Expeditionary Targeting Surveillance System- Combined (BETSS-C) Standard Ground Station (SGS) Program contract by the Program Executive Office for Intelligence, Electronic Warfare, and Sensors (PEO IEW&S) and the Project Manager of Night Vision/Reconnaissance, Surveillance, and Target Acquisition (PM NV/RSTA). This is a three-year, firm fixed price Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (ID/IQ) award contract with a maximum value of $16.6 million.
The SGS is the operator console that brings together the BETSS-C sensors, which provide specific targeting, persistent surveillance and force protection capabilities in theater. The SGS takes in, displays, and disseminates the video and metadata for these sensors and also stores video for archiving purposes. Under this contract, Ideal Innovations will procure the necessary hardware, assemble components and deliver up to 345 SGS units to the Government.
“Ideal Innovations understands and has successfully met the unique and complex challenges associated with procuring, integrating, testing, maintaining and supporting large-scale and complex systems for the Department of Defense,” said Bob Kocher, President and CEO. “Delivery of the SGS systems will provide our warfighters with an integrated security solution for effective defense of forward operating bases.”
Ideal Innovations has partnered with DRS Technologies, a leading supplier of integrated products, services and support. DRS has developed, assembled, and maintained similar systems for mission critical and defense sustainment requirements. Work on the contract will be performed at the team’s assembly space in Johnstown, Pennsylvania and completed SGS systems will be delivered to Huntsville, Alabama.
