ROME – ANDRO Computational Solutions of Rome has been awarded a nearly $7 million, three-year federal contract to develop a Dynamic Spectrum Assess Policy system, U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer announced today.
The $6,999,912 contract is being administered through the National Spectrum Consortium. ANDRO will work closely with the Air Force Research Laboratory in Rome to advance federal policy for spectrum relocation impacting both government and emerging civilian communication systems, according to Schumer.
Schumer says that this effort will help advance ANDRO’s plans to double its staff to more than 100 employees and expand facilities over the next two years.
“This federal contract and partnership between ANDRO and Rome Lab is a local match made in heaven,” Schumer said in a news release. “This award blends the local expertise of ANDRO with the local workforce and national prominence of our Rome Lab. The award will allow ANDRO to double its staff and bring even more good-paying jobs and critical economic growth to Oneida County.”
