DCS and Millennium formed the joint venture specifically to maintain DCS's long-standing relationship with US Army RDECOM CERDEC NVESD and pursue continued work under the WEBS contract vehicle. "Our continued ability to support NVESD under the WEBS contract vehicle is a great accomplishment for DCS's employee-owners and our Millennium partner," said Jim Wood, DCS Corp Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "NVESD is recognized as one of the premier labs in the DoD system. As a former NVESD civilian employee, I am pleased that DCS and Millennium have joined together to continue to support the important work that NVESD is doing to protect and equip our warfighters."
DCS-Millennium LLC is eligible to bid on individual WEBS task orders to provide a significant breadth of specialized sensor technology support. The primary organizations and technology areas supported under WEBS include each of the US Army RDECOM CERDEC NVESD Divisions, R&D, engineering, weapon system integration, infrastructure development and support, modeling and simulation, and purchased services across all US Army RDECOM CERDEC NVESD organizations.
