With a modified corporate name and rebranded technology services business, HII has been at work this year talking about itself as being equally about software and data as it is about shipbuilding.

HII, formerly Hunting Ingalls Industires, had a significant point of success to talk about on that front during its second quarter earnings call with investors Thursday: the win of a potential five-year, $826 million technology integration task order supporting the entire Defense Department.

The task order goes by the full name of Decisive Mission Actions and Technology Services and ties directly to HII's acquisition of Alion Science and Technology in last year's third quarter for $1.65 billion, HII CEO Chris Kastner told analysts.

Alion became a part of what is now the mission technologies segment of HII, formerly known as technical solutions.

"It is a really good indicator that things are hopefully starting to break loose and really validates our strategy for the Alion acquisition," Kastner said. "We are seeing some things break loose, we're going to have to see how that translates into revenue."

HII booked the DMATS order through its position on the governmentwide OASIS professional services contract vehicle. The task order covers technology, development, integration, collaboration, sustainment support, threat analysis and analytics including those of a specialized nature.

DOD service components, component research labs, the Fourth Estate administrative and support agencies, intelligence agencies and combatant commands can acquire support through the order.

The mission technologies business competed against one other bidder for the order that covers one base year and up to four individual option years, according to Federal Procurement Data System records.

Predicting when the next major win will happen for HII is a difficult proposition however. Kastner said that despite the positivity of such a synergy win, continued delays in agencies making awards are "pressuring (the) timing of current year revenues."

But the company is not standing still in positioning for those opportunities to further expand the mission technologies segment.

The business has $8 billion in bids awaiting an agency decision, while another $26 billion is in the stage of qualification and proposal. Nearly $27 billion is in the exploratory phase, or where the company is deciding whether to pursue the business.

It all adds up to a $61 billion pipeline that HII sees as growing "from the time that we picked (Alion) up last year," Chief Financial Officer Tom Stiehle told analysts.

Even with that long-term favorable outlook, HII is adjusting its mission technology revenue forecast downward for this year to the $2.4 billion-to-$2.6 billion range. HII's prior sales guidance was at the top end of $2.6 billion.

"This revision is a function of a slower award in contracting environment than we had initially expected and precipitated by the continuing resolution to start the year," Stiehle said.

Second quarter mission technologies revenue of $600 million was an increase of $363 million over hte prior period because of the Alion acquisition. The company expects the segment this year to hit an 8%-to-8.5% EBITDA margin (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization).

On top of the award delays, HII is also managing through the same tight hiring environment that other defense and government technologies have spoken about with investors over the past two weeks of earnings calls.

HII is seeing that crunch in both sides of its business: mission technologies and shipbuilding.

"We do have more seats than we have heads right now," Stiehle said. "The job market is tight, finding people with that type of background and tickets, so there's seats there we have unfilled and that brings in some variability on the sales outcome of the year."

Killexams : Amid Campus Buildout, AltaSea Prepares to Launch Two Investment Funds Totaling $600M

San Pedro-based marine research center and “blue economy” incubator AltaSea has spent its first eight years focused on building out its 35-acre campus at the Port of Los Angeles.

But even as that effort continues, AltaSea is now turning its attention to the business of fostering marine-focused companies and research.

Terry Tamminen, the environmental point man for former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger who took the helm of AltaSea in January, told the Business Journal late last month that the organization is preparing to launch later this year two new investment funds totaling $600 million.

Tamminen said one of the funds will be a $100 million venture capital fund aimed at ocean-focused companies emerging from the nonprofit’s incubator and accelerator programs. The other will be a $500 million private equity fund aimed at hydrogen technology companies. The aim is for both funds to have much of their investment dollars in hand by the end of this year or the first quarter of next year.

“These will be the first dedicated funds for AltaSea and its blue concept to commerce incubator program,” Tamminen said. “They are focused on developing the blue economy,” he added.
The blue economy refers to ocean-based activities that boost the economy, ranging from sea-based cargo movement and tourism to sustainable fisheries. Development of the blue economy has been at the heart of AltaSea’s mission since its founding as a nonprofit in 2014.

AltaSea has also this year formally launched its incubator program, which it calls “concept to commerce.” Participating companies are using the mostly renovated space in the first of the three massive warehouses the center is upgrading in the campus buildout.

Tamminen compared the warehouse incubator program to the late legendary Apple Inc. co-founder Steve Jobs’ garage, in which many of Apple’s early innovations took place. “This is Steve Jobs’ garage on steroids,” he said.

Initial campus focus

AltaSea grew out of the process a decade ago to find and design a new home for the Southern California Marine Institute, a research facility on Terminal Island that was seeking a larger and more accessible location within the port complex.
The nonprofit, which was initially supported by at least $20 million in donations from the Annenberg Foundation, signed a 50-year lease in 2016 with the Port of Los Angeles for a 35-acre campus on the century-old City Dock No. 1 at the port. The dock contained three abandoned 60,000-square-foot warehouses along with a vacant 1-acre parcel.

But as a master plan was drawn up for the repurposing of the site, AltaSea quickly grew into more than the new home for the marine institute. It was also to be a magnet for companies seeking to commercialize marine-based technologies – everything from underwater robotic monitoring systems to kelp farming to new power and propulsion systems for marine vessels.

AltaSea hired San Francisco-based Gensler to draw up the campus plan, which centered on upgrading and converting the three warehouses to accommodate incubator companies and research facilities. The plan also called for construction of a science and education center. The buildout cost was pegged at between $150 million and $200 million.

After formally taking possession of the 35-acre dock site in 2018, AltaSea has focused on raising funds, finalizing the campus plans and, in 2020, began construction on the conversion of one of the warehouses.

Fundraising

Tamminen, the former California Environmental Protection Agency secretary in the Schwarzenegger administration, said that in the last year alone AltaSea had raised $24 million toward the campus-buildout effort. That fundraising is continuing.

Tamminen said AltaSea is now part of a coalition of regional organizations that is competing for $61 million in funds from the federal Economic Development Administration to develop and scale blue and green innovations in the goods-movement sector. If the coalition gets the funding, AltaSea’s share would be up to $32 million.

And AltaSea is leading another statewide coalition seeking to win one of four $2 billion hydrogen technology hub awards from the U.S. Department of Energy. If successful, AltaSea could host one or more hydrogen technology projects.
Tamminen has some experience with hydrogen fuel technology: he was the architect of the state’s hydrogen highway program in the Schwarzenegger administration.

Tenant companies

In tandem with the fundraising, AltaSea has been bringing on tenant companies and researchers – 24 in all.
“It’s a virtual incubator that developed organically,” Tamminen said.
Among the tenants already there: Carlsbad Aquafarm, San Ramon-based Nautilus Data Technologies Inc., Boulder, Colorado-based RCAM Technologies Inc., a marine pumped hydroelectric storage company, and a USC sustainable seaweed aquaculture lab.

Another company at AltaSea is Torrance-based Blue Robotics Inc., which makes underwater robotic vehicles and components. The company uses the research facility in part to showcase its technologies to marine researchers and students.
The first tenant company at AltaSea was Braid Theory, a venture advisory firm that specializes in advising startups between the time they emerge from university research programs and enter accelerator programs.

“We focus on the blue economy, especially port environments and the decarbonization of goods movement,” said Ann Carpenter, Braid Theory’s chief executive.
Carpenter said that unlike other marine-focused research institutions in California, such as Scripps Institute of Oceanography in La Jolla or the Monterey Bay Aquarium, AltaSea’s presence at the largest port complex in North America taps more directly into the segment of the blue economy that Braid Theory focuses on.

“We need to have our client entrepreneurs be close to port customers and the industrial economy of San Pedro,” Carpenter said.
On the research side, AltaSea will soon be host to a demonstration facility for the extraction of carbon that’s part of UCLA’s carbon-capture program headed by Gaurav Sant, professor of civil and environmental engineering at UCLA. Sant is also one of the founders of Manhattan Beach-based CarbonBuilt, which is working on placing captured carbon emissions into concrete.

Tamminen said Sant’s project at AltaSea is focused on capturing carbon out of the air and in the process generating hydrogen fuel. He added that another AltaSea tenant is Robert Ballard, who keeps his underwater exploration vehicle Nautilus there when not in use during the winter months. Ballard, of course, discovered the wreck of the Titanic in the mid-1980s.

Other efforts

Another key component of AltaSea is marine and blue economy education programs. AltaSea has ramped up efforts to bring K-12 students to the campus for tours and programs and has also sponsored various STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) programs in local schools.

And by the end of this year, AltaSea is aiming to have a large solar panel installation in operation, generating 2.2 million megawatts, enough to power all activities onsite and put some electricity back onto the grid. The roof for the solar panels was completed last month.

“Ultimately, this isn’t just about providing power to the AltaSea campus,” Tamminen said. “The longer-term aim is to use solar power to electrolyze wastewater or seawater and separate out the hydrogen, which can then be used as ‘green hydrogen’ for fuel cells.”

Killexams : How a CrewCom Wireless Intercom System Empowers Student Production

When Sunny Shergill was named technical theater director at Clayton Valley Charter High School (CVCHS), he returned to his alma mater determined to supply students the best training possible at the high school level. With an aging wireless intercom system that was struggling to make the grade, Shergill convinced school officials to purchase a CrewCom wireless intercom system from Pliant Technologies (opens in new tab).

Clayton Valley Charter High School is a tuition-free, public charter school located in Concord, CA. For Shergill, his goal in acquiring the CrewCom system was two-fold. “First, our school wanted to provide the students in our Tech program with industry standard equipment and the best hands-on experience possible,” said Shergill. “Secondly, we required full-campus coverage. We run multiple events on the same day at various locations and we needed to be able to deploy our communication system throughout the campus, which is very large. With our old system, every time we did an event, we needed to disassemble our rack or have a rolling rack, which was difficult. When the decision was made to find something that would fit our needs better; I knew we needed to look at Pliant and its CrewCom system.”
