research-and-development-RDThe Utah State University Research Foundation has received a potential five-year, $99.4 million contract to research and develop space-based sensor platforms for the Missile Defense Agency.

The foundation will perform work at its Logan, Utah-based facility through Aug. 16, 2021 under the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, the Defense Department said Wednesday.

The cost-plus-fixed-fee contract also covers technology R&D and engineering support services.

MDA will use its R&D, test and evaluation funds to support task orders to be issued under the IDIQ contract, according to DoD.

The USU Research Foundation is a nonprofit organization founded in 1967 and works to develop systems designed for military, space and civil applications through its space dynamics laboratory unit.

DoD designated SDL as one of the country’s six university affiliated research centers in 1996.
