The Pentagon has awarded eight companies a contract to upgrade old electronics hardware and software.
Lockheed Martin Corp., BAE Systems Information & Electronic Systems Integration, General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems, Northrop Grumman Systems Corp., Aeroflex Colorado Springs Inc., Raytheon Co., The Boeing Co., and Honeywell International Inc. are each being awarded an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity, multiple award, engineering services contract for the Advanced Technology Support Program IV (ATSP4).
The ATSP4 program is designed to resolve problems with obsolete, unreliable, unmaintainable, underperforming, or incapable electronics hardware and software through development of advanced technology insertions and applications to meet the requirements of the Department of Defense for a quick reaction capability.
The maximum dollar ceiling, including the base period and four options for all eight contracts combined, is $7,200,000,000. Work is expected to be performed at each of the contractors’ locations, but may vary and may be worldwide with a total of 10 years of potential ordering period. All work under the subsequent task orders will be completed by March 31, 2028.
The ATSP4 contracts are capable of supporting Foreign Military Sales tasks. These awards have programmatic ceiling only; funding will be obligated for each task; no funds are obligated on the basic contracts. The contracts were competitively procured via solicitation HQ0727-15-R-0001, resulting in nine proposals.
The Defense Microelectronics Activity, McClellan, California, is the contracting activity.
