The U.S. Air Force has awarded Booz Allen Hamilton one of several positions on an indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract valued at $950 million.

The contract supports development of the Advanced Battle Management System (ABMS), which will enable rapid decision making and all-domain command and control, according to a statement by the company.

Part of the Department of Defense’s Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2) concept, ABMS aims to enable all services to operate together as part of a joint team—connecting sensors, decision makers, and weapons through a secure data network, according to Booz Allen.

Booz Allen has been selected by the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center’s (AFLCMC) Chief Architect Integration Office (CAIO) and will compete for task orders to support digital transformation across all aspects of the Air Force’s command and control enterprise.
