Harris CapRock Wins DISA $65M Satellite IDIQ Spot

Harris CapRock (NYSE: HRS) has won a position on a potential $65.75 million contract to provide mobile satellite services to the Defense Department’s commands, services and agencies.

The Pentagon said other federal agencies can acquire the services under the potential two-year contract, which could run from June 6, 2012 through June 5, 2014.

Awardees will deliver global commercial mobile satellite services as well as L-band satellite resources and airtime services for Inmarsat‘s broadband global area network.

Work under the multiple-award indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract will support land,  ship-to-ship, ship-to-shore, shore-to-ship and aeronautical communications worldwide.

DISA selected the incumbent awardees on a sole-source basis and the Pentagon said awardees were considered small businesses at the time of the original award, but are now considered large businesses.

The agency selected Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) to provide engineering services for a global information sharing network, extending that company’s support for the network for another five years.
