Ocean Power Technologies, Inc. ("OPT" or "the Company"), a leader in innovative and cost-effective low-carbon marine data, power, and consulting service solutions, has been selected for a $529,025 procurement by Amentum Services. OPT was awarded the procurement to assist Amentum in providing the Department of Defense (DoD) Information Analysis Center (IAC) with land, air, space, and port & coastal surveillance services in support of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science & Technology Directorate (S&T).

OPT’s efforts under the Subcontract will include providing scientific hardware delivery, training, and integration services for DHS S&T Port and Coastal Surveillance (P&CS) projects. The P&CS project seeks to identify and integrate sensors and systems and share data suitable for the full spectrum of maritime operations. OPT will provide the required hardware, hardware deployment support, software, software deployment support, integration services, surveillance and telemetry data, and associated training in support of a PB3 PowerBuoy® equipped with OPT’s proprietary Maritime Domain Awareness solution. The Maritime Domain Awareness Solution is deployed in support of security efforts to detect illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing, dark vessels, and human/drug trafficking in operation 24/7/365.

“We at OPT are proud to support DHS’s mission to help secure the nation’s coastlines,” said Philipp Stratmann, President and Chief Executive Officer of OPT. “Ocean security is national security. We believe OPT’s systems are well suited for long term maritime domain awareness deployments and have little to no adverse impact on the environment. DHS has thousands of miles of coastline to protect, and needs to develop detailed, sustainable information sources to execute on its mission to protect our country. Along with our partner, Amentum, we look forward to delivering new technology to DHS to help it achieve these goals.”
