HERNDON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Department of the Navy has awarded Peraton a contract to support the efforts of U.S. armed services to detect, locate, remove and secure unexploded ordnance on land and at sea.
Peraton will support the Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Program Management Office.
The contract has a ceiling of $40.97 million for one base year and four option years. This is the team’s tenth consecutive EOD support contract award since 1983, which covers onsite engineering, logistics, and curriculum development, and training support services for the Joint EOD Community.
Gus Bontzos, Peraton president Defense and Electronic Warfare sector said, “Detecting, locating, removing or neutralizing unexploded ordnance that threaten our forces and innocent civilians is a critical DOD and humanitarian mission, and it is an honor to be a part of it.”

It is our job to help our military do this work more safely and efficiently, and ultimately help make former conflict areas safe for people to live, work and travel,” he said.
The EOD Program Management Office provides the systems, tools and equipment EOD technicians need to locate, identify and neutralize unexploded ground and underwater ordnance, including sea mines, IEDs and other devices.
