Japan's military is lagging in terms of its digitisation, but a smart base experiment could begin to turn the tide.
Peraton to support EOD Program Management Office
Peraton will provide support for land and sea EOD operations to the US armed services under a contract from the US Navy, the company announced on 21 March.
The contract will see Peraton support the Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Program Management Office with onsite engineering, logistics and curriculum development and training support services.
The EOD Program Management Office provides the systems, tools and equipment EOD technicians need to locate, identify and neutralise unexploded ground and underwater ordnance, including sea mines, IEDs and other devices.
The contract has a ceiling of $40.97 million for one base year and four option years.
Gus Bontzos, president, defense and electronic warfare sector, Peraton, said: ‘Detecting, locating, removing or neutralising unexploded ordnance that threaten our forces and innocent civilians is a critical Department of Defense and humanitarian mission and it is an honour to be a part of it.
‘Unfortunately, armed conflicts continue around the world and so does the proliferation of IEDs, landmines and other unexploded ordnance. It is our job to help our military do this work more safely and efficiently, and ultimately help make former conflict areas safe for people to live, work and travel.’
