University of Dayton Research Institute Awarded $35M Contract for Energetic Materials Study

The University of Dayton Research Institute, Dayton, Ohio, has been awarded an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity, cost-plus-fixed-fee contract task order modification (P00007) of $35,000,000 to previously awarded contract FA8651-20-D-0003. This modification will explore the phenomenology of energetic materials and quantify the factors, which could affect a material’s sensitivity to shock, electrostatic discharge, friction, aging, temperature, mechanical loading and other environmental or operational factors. This modification will increase the total contract value to $60,000,000. Work will be performed at Dayton, Ohio, and is expected to be completed by April 7, 2025. This contract will be funded by research, development, test and evaluation funds and no funds are being obligated at time of award. The Air Force Research Laboratory, Eglin Air Force Base, Florida, is the contracting activity.
