The U.S. Department of Defense has awarded a more than $66 million contract to Odon-based Artisan Electronics Inc. and two other companies. The five-year contract calls for production of automatic test systems and support equipment for weapons systems used by the U.S. Marine Corps.
As part of the contract, Artisan, along with partner companies Carmel-based 3DGS and Technology Service Corp. with offices in Bloomington, will build test system hardware and software, update and maintain test systems and translate user manuals and data into Arabic as part of Foreign Military Sales to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
“TSC and Artisan Electronics have a long history of teaming together in support of the Naval Surface Warfare Center at Crane. The knowledge and experience gained at Crane has allowed us to reach outside the region and bring this work back home to Indiana,” stated TSC Indiana Operations Manager Mike Kramme. “TSC is excited to continue our collaboration with Artisan under this contract extending our ATS expertise now to the US Marine Corps.”
The company says the contract will further enable its growth plans in Indiana. In June, the company announced plans to expand its operations in south central Indiana, creating up to 20 jobs by the end of 2023.
The contract was also awarded to Hiller Measurements Inc. in Texas and Logisys Technical Services Inc. in Alabama. Work is expected to be completed at each awardees facility and is expected be completed by September 2025.
The Naval Surface Warfare Center, Corona Division in Norco, California, is the contracting activity.
