Engility Wins $38 M to Support Defense Threat Reduction Agency Program to Combat WMD Threats

  • Award Expands Company's DTRA Work and Reflects Engility's Strong Engineering and Knowledge Management Capabilities

Engility Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:EGL), today announced it has been awarded a $38 million contract to support the cloud-based Constellation Combating Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) Situational Awareness system. Under this contract, which was awarded by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), Engility will provide systems integration and engineering services.

Constellation represents a U.S. Government interagency effort to develop a holistic and global capability to continuously assess WMD threats and identify opportunities to proactively counter those threats. The program is designed to strengthen global situational awareness of combating weapons of mass destruction efforts and threats by providing a common environment for data sharing, analysis, and threat evaluation. Through Constellation, U.S. Government agencies will be able to increase access and share information about strategies, plans, operations and activities to combat WMD threats. The program also is expected to strengthen collaboration among interagency and international partners to build capabilities and counter WMD threats.


“We are proud to win this contract which expands our work with the team at DTRA,” said Engility President and CEO Tony Smeraglinolo. “The Constellation program will increase our capability for detecting, understanding and forecasting WMD threats, which is a vital component in protecting our Nation. We look forward to supporting DTRA on this extremely important mission.”

The five-year cost-plus-fixed-fee contract represents new work for Engility.
