Hoosier companies part of $20B military contract vehicle

ODON, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) — A Daviess County company has been chosen as a prime contractor for a U.S. Navy contract vehicle valued at $20 billion over five years. geoConvergence, a geospatial intelligence firm in Odon, says being selected will open a new channel for business with the Navy and the U.S. Marine Corps.

The deal is part of the Navy’s SeaPort-NxG contract vehicle and will include support services in 23 functional areas, including software development, software engineering and Geographic Information System services. 

In addition to geoConvergence as the prime contractor, nine Indiana companies will serve as subcontractors. They include The Mako Group, Leaf Software Solutions and 3DGS, all of which are based in Carmel, as well as Artisan Electronics in Odon, GRAVICOM, CSCI Consulting and Ryan Consulting Group in Indianapolis, Frontier Geospatial in Evansville and True North Joint Venture in Bloomington. 

“Yet another contract win for geoConvergence and this team is proof that smaller, non-traditional Indiana companies have the expertise and ability to perform on major defense contracts,” said Mike Dodd, advisory board chairman of Dioltas, who provided strategic guidance on this pursuit. “We are working day and night to change the Midwest defense landscape and this contract will bring more DoD dollars to the companies involved and the State of Indiana.”

Two non-Indiana companies, MetroStar and General Dynamics Information Technology, both headquartered in Virginia, are also serving as subcontractors to geoConvergence.
