Government services provider Perspecta Inc. has received an award to perform systems engineering and integration work for the newly established Space Development Agency.
The single award indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract represents new work for the company and has a ceiling of $112 million with an ordering period of 5 years. Work on the program began in late October under an initial $17.8 million task order.
“Warfighters on the ground depend on Perspecta every day to accomplish their missions and we’re excited to extend our impact beyond the traditional battlefield,” said Jeff Bohling, senior vice president of the defense group at Perspecta.
“Our sophisticated, scalable SE&I expertise will support the U.S. government in maintaining a multi-domain technological and military advantage in an era of increasing threat and international competition,” he added.
Perspecta is to deliver SE&I support for SDA’s initial satellite constellation known as Tranche 0, a system designed to demonstrate the initial capabilities of the National Defense Space Architecture. The agreement calls for Perspecta engineers and architects to develop infrastructure to ensure the NDSA Transport Layer, Tracking Layer and ground segment operate in unison to support warfighter mission scenarios and experiments.
