Defense contractor TAPE, LLC has opened an office in Belcamp to service a major Army contract. The new office is at 101 Bata Blvd., Suite 102, in the Water's Edge corporate campus.
According to a company news release, in 2010, TAPE, an acronym for Technical and Project Engineering, was awarded as a prime contractor, a $400 million U.S. Army research and development contract atAberdeen Proving Ground.
The contract, awarded by the Army Research Laboratory, or ARL, develops and supports new concepts for application of advanced technology for special operations forces, combatant commanders and the intelligence community.

At the Belcamp location, TAPE, supported by a team of subcontractors, is one of seven companies awarded prime contracts for ARL's five-year, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity program. The company supports this ARL focus, to counteract and defeat the growing worldwide terrorist threat, by the timely application of advanced technologies.
A company spokesperson said in an e-mail Monday that the new Harford County office has eight employees.
"Our new facility puts us at the doorstep of responding to the needs of our customer," Bill D. Lese, director ofAberdeen Operations, said. "We are committed to being an active member of many of the organizations supporting the Aberdeen community."
