Serco Inc. has won a new Space Fence Operations and Maintenance contract by the U.S. Space Force’ Space Operations Command.
As the prime contractor, Serco will provide full-time services to manage, operate and maintain logistical support for the Space Fence system. The Space Fence is a second-generation ground-based S-Band radar space surveillance system improving space domain awareness.
The contract has a 5-month base period plus five 1-year option periods and is valued at $33 million, if all options are exercised.
“From Serco’s RAF Fylingdales work in the U.K starting in 1963 through our GEODSS win here in the U.S. last year, Serco brings an impressive depth and breadth of experience and knowledge to space operations,” said Serco CEO Dave Dacquino.
Serco will perform space domain awareness operations, logistics and organizational level maintenance for the Space Fence radar and supporting systems. It will also provide cybersecurity, training and knowledge management.
“I’m proud to see highly capable Serco innovators supporting the planning, execution, and operations in this way for improving Space Domain Awareness,” Dacquino said.
