The U.S. Army’s Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training, and Instrumentation (PEO STRI) has awarded Verus Research a $203 million ceiling increase on its current indefinite delivery indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract. With an ordering period running through 2029, the contract, Test & Evaluation Non-Kinetic, or TEN-K, will enable Verus Research to further improve the U.S. Department of Defense’s ability to test the effectiveness of rapidly developing non-kinetic capabilities, including directed energy, electronic warfare, and nuclear systems. This award represents the largest in Company history.
Work on this project will include the design and development of agile surrogate high-power microwave systems; specialized sensors, instrumentation, and diagnostics required to validate performance of non-kinetic systems; and continued development of the Company’s dense plasma focus capability. All of these technical outcomes will serve to create enhanced and enduring capabilities for the nation’s major range and test facility infrastructure.
Dan Treibel, Verus Research’s Chief Operating Officer, noted that the award “affirms Verus Research’s industry-leading position in directed energy technologies and diagnostic systems” and is strong evidence of our customer’s “high level of satisfaction with our performance to date and innovative plans for the future.”
