Envistacom Data Universal Numbering Systems (DUNS) Number: 968250378


Envistacom was awarded in July 2021 two separate individual, Multiple Award (MA), Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contracts under ASTRO that encompass a variety of services related to manned, unmanned, and optionally manned platforms and robotics.

The two individual MA IDIQ contracts under ASTRO that were awarded to Envistacom were Development/Systems Integration Domain Pool and the Research Pool. Their overarching scopes are provided below:


Development includes all services related to the improvement or enhancement of the overall platform or improvement or enhancement of any subsystem or component of a platform.

Systems Integration includes all services related to the process of bringing together component systems/subsystems into one system (an aggregation of systems/subsystems cooperating so that the system is able to deliver the overarching functionality) and ensuring that the component systems/subsystems function together as a single system.

These services are performed within the framework of manned, unmanned, or optionally manned platform and/or robotics. Service areas that are included under the Development/Systems Integration Domain include but are not limited to the following examples (listed in alphabetical order):
