Jun 17th, 2015
Newport News, VA – Universal Solutions International Inc. (USI) has been awarded a new task order contract by prime contractor Engility in support of Nuclear Technologies Department of the Defense Threat Reduction Agency.
The Nuclear Threat Department scientists, technicians, and military experts are working with industry and other agencies and governments to combat radiological and nuclear weapons. They are advancing the technologies and creating the tools that can find these weapons long before they can harm our warfighters, our allies and partners, and the United States.
The solutions they are crafting are as unique as the problem, and they are solving problems that were considered hopeless just a few years ago. They are developing nuclear detection technologies that work on land, on the sea and in the air. They are producing handheld detectors that are rugged, reliable and easy to use, and larger detectors that can detect weapons and materials from incredible distances. And it’s not just the problems known today – they are looking far ahead, anticipating what our adversaries will be doing in 20 years – and developing those countermeasures today.
The Nuclear Survivability scientists, researchers and military experts are helping our military enhance battlefield survivability. They’re developing radiation hardened electronics to protect our equipment and infrastructure from a damaging electromagnetic pulse. And in doing so, they’re preserving our military capability to quickly react to such an attack and carry out offensive operations as ordered by national and military leaders.
