A Dayton software company has been named to a massive defense deal worth nearly $1 billion. With this award and other recent successes, the firm is projecting significant growth over the next year.
Tangram Flex was one of several companies awarded an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract to compete for future efforts associated with the maturation, demonstration and proliferation of capability across platforms and domains. Of the dozens of firms listed on the award, Tangram Flex was the only one based in Ohio.
This contract will leverage open systems design, modern software and algorithm development to enable Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2), providing for the development and operation of systems as a unified force across all domains. The new Air Force contract has a ceiling of $950 million.
The contract is part of an effort to provide development and operation of systems as a unified force across all domains (air, land, sea, space, cyber and electromagnetic spectrum) in an open architecture family of systems that enables capabilities via multiple integrated platforms.
“We are thrilled for the opportunity to contribute to the Pentagon’s JADC2 strategy,” said Ryan Helbach, director of business development at Tangram Flex. “Tangram’s expertise in interoperability and software integration in high-stakes environments is directly suited for supporting the DoD in the adoption of open systems designs and the modernization of software systems.”
Work will be performed in locations to be determined at the contract direct order level, and is expected to be complete by May 28, 2025. The Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, headquartered at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, is the contracting activity.
With nearly $1 billion up for grabs, this contract will likely bring a substantial amount of new work to Tangram Flex, and will help the company grow. It also helps strengthen the firm’s relationship with the U.S. military, and may lead to new hires as the company competes for component software integration task orders across DoD systems.
With this award and other recent successes, Tangram Flex is projecting 45% company growth from 2021 to 2022.
“We are excited about our selection for this award and the confidence that the ABMS (Advanced Battle Management System) program office has in our team,” Tangram Flex CEO Ricky Peters said. “At Tangram Flex, we believe every mission deserves access to innovation. Our team has deep expertise and experience in simplifying and securing software integration and we are working hard with our DoD partners to make this vision a reality.”
Tangram Flex is a product-driven software company that provides custom service and expertise in system modernization, integration, assurance and autonomy. Its capabilities include software research, prototypes, services and products that enable rapid integration.
The firm combines engineering expertise with its component software integration platform product — Tangram Pro — to arm engineers with customized toolkits for meeting mission needs. The company also plans to roll out a new product called Tangram Maker, which is a free tool for engineers, students and innovators.
Tangram’s staff of 73 employees have experience from the U.S. Department of Defense, Fortune 50 companies and software startups. In addition to its Dayton headquarters, the company has satellite offices in Arlington,Virginia and Fort Walton Beach, Florida.
