Unmanned maritime systems contractor Peraton has won a spot on an $982.1 million IDIQ multiple award contract supporting the U.S. Navy’s Unmanned Surface Vehicle Family of Systems.

Peraton reports it has been selected to compete in all six categories.
“Peraton has been a major supporter of the U.S. Navy’s Unmanned Underwater Vehicle Family of Systems for nearly two decades,” said John Coleman, Peraton’s president of the Defense and Homeland Security sector. “As the Navy expands its Unmanned Surface Vehicle Family of Systems work, we are proud to be a part of this critical element of the Navy’s warfighting strategy for the future.”
The task orders will help the Navy maintain and modernize to meet current and future operational requirements. Contractors will compete for task orders to support the current Unmanned Surface Vehicle systems and subsystems as well as future USV systems and subsystems for Program Executive Office Unmanned and Small Combatants, Program Management NAVSEA 406.
“Based on our long track record, extensive experience, and unmatched relationships, we are confident that we will be competitive for many future task orders under this IDIQ,” Coleman said.
