4 Firms Land Spots on $1.73B Navy Drone ISR Services IDIQ

The U.S. Navy has awarded four companies positions on a potential five-year, $1.73 billion contract to provide intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance support services for land and maritime-based unmanned aerial systems.

The Naval Air Systems Command received four offers for the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract that covers drone ISR non-developmental equipment, spares, trained personnel, installation, certification, operations, sustainment and maintenance support services, the Defense Department said Thursday.

The awardees are Boeing’s (NYSE: BA) Insitu business, Textron’s (NYSE: TXT) AAI Corp., PAE’s ISR business and Academi Training Center and will perform work at their respective facilities in Washington, Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina through June 2022.

The firm-fixed-price contract allows Insitu and AAI to compete for ground- and sea-based UAS task orders, while PAE ISR and Academi are eligible to vie for land-based UAS support task orders.
