LEXINGTON PARK, Md. Assurance Technology Group, LLC (ATG) has been awarded a 10.5 million dollar task-order under the Navy's Seaport-e contract to provide engineering support services to the Naval Aviation Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWC-AD), Metrology Engineering Support Branch (MESB), at the Patuxent River Naval Air Station (NAS).
Metrology is defined by the International Bureau of Weights and Measures (BIPM) as "...the science of measurement, embracing both experiment and theoretical determinations at any level of uncertainty in any field of Science and Technology." Metrology is a critical component of avionics. Sophisticated aircraft constantly need to monitor their environment to ensure proper operation of the aircraft--for example, wind speed, direction, and temperature.
ATG, along with Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC), will provide engineering, technical, management, and administrative services to the MESB over the five-year period of performance for the task-order.
ATG, founded in 2000, is a metrology-focused, veteran-owned, small business based in Lexington Park, Md. ATG currently provides engineering services to the Naval Aviation (NAVAIR) Metrology and Calibration Program Office, and the NAWC Air Combat Environment Test and Evaluation Facility.
ATG is led by Frank Griffo, founder, president, and CEO; William O'Dell, founding partner and Chief Operations Officer; and Heidi Halt, Director of Finance and Human Resources.
