ULA Lands $208M USAF Modification for Atlas V Launch Vehicle Production Services

United Launch Alliance has received a potential $208.1 million contract modification from the U.S. Air Force to continue to provide launch vehicle production support for a new Atlas V rocket configuration.

The Boeing (NYSE: BA) and Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) joint venture will provide an Atlas V 551 rocket configuration, solid rocket booster and transportation services to meet the requirements of the Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle contract’s initial phase, the Defense Department said Friday.

The award also includes a pre‐priced contract line item for the new launch vehicle configuration.

ULA will perform work in Colorado, Alabama and Florida through Sept. 30, 2019.

The Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center will obligate the full contract amount of the modification from space procurement funds for fiscal 2017 at the time of award.

The Atlas V family of EELV rockets has performed at least 600 launches since its introduction in 2002.
