The companies said Tuesday IBL JV, LLC will bid on the U.S. Air Force Space Command’s planned launch and test range system integrated support contract LISC.

The team members currently serve as incumbents on the Air Force’s previously awarded Spacelift Range System contract.

IBL, LLC is looking to provide operations and maintenance for the Air Force’s Eastern and Western ranges under a single contract.

The move would merge the SLRS with the Eastern Range Technical Services and Western Range Operations Communications and Information contracts.

The companies said the launch and test ranges deploy satellites and enable testing and verification of intercontinental ballistic missiles and submarine-based missile defense systems.
