Air Force Plans RPA Missile Simulation Contract Award to General Atomics

The U.S. Air Force has announced plans to award a General Atomics business unit a contract to develop an air-to-air missile aviation simulation technology for the MQ-9 Reaper remotely piloted aircraft.

General Atomics Aeronautical Systems Inc. would develop the AAM AVSIM system under the proposed contract from the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center’s Medium Altitude Unmanned Aerial Systems Division, USAF said in a FedBizOpps notice published Wednesday.

The company owns MQ-9 data rights and the government seeks to avoid duplication costs by issuing a sole-source award in accordance with the Federal Acquisition Regulation.

USAF expects GA-ASI to submit a response by March 22.
