RTI Awarded Opportunity to Participate in US Air Force Contract to Support Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2)

SUNNYVALE, Calif. – July 7, 2022 Real-Time Innovations (RTI), the largest software framework company for autonomous systems, today announced it has been awarded an opportunity to compete for projects and licenses under an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract vehicle.

More specifically, RTI has been awarded a $950,000,000 ceiling indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract for the maturation, demonstration and proliferation of capability across platforms and domains. The contract will leverage open systems design, modern software and algorithm development to enable Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2). This contract is part of a multiple award multi-level security effort to provide development and operation of systems as a unified force across all domains (air, land, sea, space, cyber, and electromagnetic spectrum) in an open architecture family of systems that enables capabilities via multiple integrated platforms.

"RTI is proud to be named an industry partner for this US Air Force Advanced Battlefield Management Systems (ABMS) initiative. The IDIQ is basically a framework contract; it is a pre-competition selection so the government can streamline the competitive bidding process. This round of IDIQ awards, one of many for JADC2, awards 27 companies the opportunity to compete for projects with an overall ceiling of nearly $1 billion. We are excited about the opportunity to compete for projects and thus contribute to the Pentagon's efforts towards achieving JADC2," said Chip Downing, Senior Market Development Director, Aerospace & Defense at RTI. "RTI Connext provides a proven, open-standard-based, software connectivity framework that is ideal for supporting the Air Force in revitalizing their part of the integrated JADC2 Joint Force network. With our powerful security products and commercial RTCA DO-178C certification evidence for airborne systems, RTI is positioned to accelerate ABMS concepts into production systems."

Under the IDIQ, work will be performed in locations to be determined at the contract direct order level and is expected to be completed by May 28, 2025.

*Disclaimer: This press release has since been modified to provide further clarification to the government IDIQ contract process.
