CTC, Concurrent Technologies Corporation of Johnstown, PA is proud to demonstrate a Hybrid Halvorsen Loader, Establish a Strategic Partnership with Smartronix, Work on the Readiness Reporting System and Partner with Risk Mitigation Consulting Inc. for Facility Related Control Systems.

Work Includes an Initial $1.5M Task Order to Design, Develop, and Demonstrate a Hybrid Halvorsen Loader

  Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC) has been named one of three awardees of a seven-year Air Force Research Laboratory-Advanced Power Technology Office (AFRL-APTO) multiple-award Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract with a $49 million ceiling. Concurrently, CTC has been competitively awarded its first task order under the contract.  

AFRL-APTO created this IDIQ to advance/leverage alternative energy and energy efficient and environmentally safe technologies to provide cost reduction, reliability improvements, and enhancements to U.S. Air Force missions. In addition to CTC, the University of Dayton Research Institute and Southwest Research Institute will perform work on the IDIQ contract through January 2025. 

 CTC’s first task order, which runs through April 2020, is valued at $1.5 million and focuses on the hybridization of a “Halvorsen 25K Loader,” which the Air Force uses to load and unload cargo from transport aircraft. The 27-month effort will enable the Air Force to retrofit the diesel-powered loaders with a hydraulic electric hybrid system. CTC will design, develop, and demonstrate a hybrid Halvorsen loader, using engineers and ground support subject matter experts with relevant, successful experience for the Air Force. The hybrid system will be tested and demonstrated at CTC’s Johnstown, PA, facility. Staff will analyze energy efficiency, agility, noise, reliability, and maintainability then furnish a comprehensive technical data package, enabling the hybrid design to be replicated and maintained. 

“AFRL-APTO is a long-time valued client, and we are very pleased to continue our work in support of their mission,” said Edward J. Sheehan, Jr., CTC President and Chief Executive Officer. “In this particular effort, CTC leverages successes in developing a hybrid electric flightline system and other related technology advancements.” 

The expected benefits of a hydraulic electric hybrid system include improved agility, fuel efficiency, safety, reliability, maintainability, and noise and chemical emissions.

CTC Building on its Work on the Federal/Emergency Readiness Reporting System 

 The Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA’s) National Continuity Programs (NCP) has competitively awarded a contract to Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC) to provide technical support for its Readiness Reporting System (RRS). RRS is a web-based tool for collecting, analyzing, and reporting readiness data that helps key leaders make decisions that impact national security. 

This contract consists of one base year and four option years and is worth a total of nearly $4.7 million. During these five years, CTC will assist FEMA in prioritizing requirements; advising FEMA staff in technical areas; and managing system configuration changes, software upgrades, and security design specifications.  

“Through our long-term partnership with NCP, we are able to continue to provide critically important support for the continuity of our government under all conditions,” said Bob Kubler, CTC Executive Director, Readiness. “This contract allows us to continue our tenure of providing exceptional program management, analysis, and software/system engineering support.” 

“We are honored to support this long-time and important client,” said Edward J. Sheehan, Jr., CTC President and CEO. “Our combination of understanding, experience, and expertise will fully support NCP’s mission to ensure the country’s essential functions continue to operate throughout any disruption of normal activities.”  

  CTC to Partner with Risk Mitigation Consulting, Inc., for work on Facility-Related Control Systems 

The U.S. Marine Corps Installations Command (MCICOM) has awarded Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC) a contract to provide functional and technical programmatic support for securing the Marine Corps’ Facility Related Control Systems (FRCS). The period of performance includes a base year and two option years valued at up to $6.2 million. 

FRCS includes systems that are used to operate and manage utilities or that are associated with the operation of an Installation (including the associated facilities). Examples of FRCS include energy management control systems, utility control systems or supervisory control and data acquisition, building control systems, fire suppression systems, installation access control systems, and traffic camera systems. 

“We are supporting the Marine Corps in its development and implementation of strategies, methodologies, protocols, and other activities to strengthen the security of Marine Corps installations against cyber-attacks,” said Dave Becker, CTC Project Manager “Our work will enhance continued protection, function, and resilience of these systems in Marine Corps installations that support global operations to ensure mission readiness.” 

CTC and RMC offer highly specialized technical, analytical, and investigative resources and expertise in FRCS and comprehensive assessment services. They have been protecting assets, facilities, and infrastructure across the Department of Defense for decades. 

“CTC is honored to be chosen to help strengthen the Marine Corps’ cyber security posture,” said Edward J. Sheehan, Jr., CTC President and CEO.
