$40 Million Contract Enhancement Continues to Drive Growth for Aptima in Dayton, OH

Growing need for speed-to-mission results in contract ceiling increase to $99 Million, with continuing focus on warfighter performance & ongoing ties to US Air Force to extend local presence

Fairborn, OH – January 29, 2023 – Aptima, Inc., a trailblazer in leveraging artificial intelligence and advanced analytics to enhance mission readiness, continues to drive innovation in human performance. By harnessing data-driven insights, Aptima specializes in tailoring training and human-machine teaming solutions, positively impacting the lives of warfighters.

Aptima pioneers groundbreaking solutions that elevate warfighter performance across diverse, technology-driven missions. From immersive training scenarios to real-world applications in operational domains and the battlefield, the company’s technologies offer intelligent insights for precision training and AI-integrated support, directly benefiting warfighters’ wellbeing.

The recent $40 Million augmentation supplements a 2019 Phase III contract award, initially valued at up to $59 Million, that has resulted in over $43 Million in funding received by Aptima over the past 4 years.
