ULARocketUnited Launch Alliance has received a $269.2 million contract modification to configure the Delta IV Heavy rocket as part of the U.S. Air Force‘s launch vehicle production requirement for fiscal year 2017.

The Defense Department said Friday work will occur in Centennial, Colorado; Decatur, Alabama; and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida, through April 30, 2020.

The modification contains a pre‐priced contract line item for the Delta IV Heavy configuration and the Air Force obligated $85.8 million in 2016 and 2017 space procurement funds at the time of award.

ULA, a joint venture of Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) and Boeing (NYSE: BA), designed the Delta IV family of launch vehicles to assist customers such as the Air Force, National Reconnaissance Office and NASA in efforts to launch payloads into orbit.
