A local scientific research and technology development company has been awarded a massive contract with the U.S. Air Force.
Beavercreek-based Spectral Energies LLC received a $184.3 million contract for innovative combustion and propulsion research, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) announced. The contract provides for the advancement of propulsion-related research and technologies for Department of Defense platforms. 
Spectral Energies beat out three other companies for the project, which has an estimated completion date of June 14, 2030. Work will be performed at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. The Air Force Research Laboratory, headquartered at Wright-Patt, is the contracting activity.
The deal is significant because it brings a substantial amount of new work to Spectral Energies, and will likely help the company grow. It also helps strengthen the firm’s relationship with the U.S. military, and may lead to new hires.
In addition to this contract, Spectral Energies has worked to make a national impact through photopolymer production in the holographic-based augmented reality space and to create a domestic supply in the United States.
Spectral Energies was formed in 2006 by a union of several science and technology developers. Since that founding, the company has gained experience in the aerospace, transportation, defense and energy sectors. That experience has earned Spectral Energies numerous Phase I, II and III SBIR/STTR contracts and grants from government agencies like the DoD, NASA, National Institutes of Health and Department of Energy on technologies related to aerodynamics, diagnostics and sensors, hypersonics, aero-optics, aero-acoustics, wind tunnels, particle analyzers and plasma.
Spectral Energies offers services that include engineering analysis, physical interpretation and research support with photonics technology, active sensing and high-speed multi-dimensional imaging. The firm also designs and develops advanced solutions in optics, lasers, sensors, aerospace science and engineering for its customers.
