Teledyne Brown Engineering Inc., in Huntsville, recently won an $83.6 million contract to help the Navy upgrade the software it uses to manage its health care services.
The contract, issue for bids in January, calls for work on two data-based toolkits the Navy uses in “real-world deployments” of health services.
The current suite of tools includes the Medical Planners Toolkit and the Joint Medical Planning Tool. Both are software for DOD medical planners that draw data from two databases.
The Navy wants to enhance the two systems through the design and development of IT applications, improved integration of existing modeling and simulation tools, and establishment of a common database where users can add or update data elements. Those systems fall under the Navy’s Simulation Planning Tools Sustainment, Enhancement and Application program.
The contract, initially put out for bids in January, is for the Medical Modeling for the Naval Health Research Center in San Diego, California.
According to the Navy, 80 percent of the work will be performed in Huntsville and 20 percent in San Diego.
The contract is expected to be completed by August 2026.
