BAE Systems holds a position on potential three-year, $220 million contract covering assessment work for the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command and Army Forces Strategic Command.
The contract’s five awardees will compete for task orders to help evaluate technologies in areas such as weapons development, integrated missile defense, cyber technology and homeland security, BAE said Monday.
Contractors will also test intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance technologies under the Test Execution Services and Launch Augmentation indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract.
“Winning TESTLA builds on our long-standing relationship with SMDC,” said Tom White, senior director of mission support solutions at BAE Systems.
“The work will also position us for additional growth in the military space market,” White added.
BAE has worked with SMDC since 2006 under the Concepts and Operations for Space and Missile Defense Integration Capabilities contract, under which the company works to develop and integrate electronic systems for use in reconnaissance and surveillance operations.
