ULA to Help Air Force Launch Space Test Program-3 Mission Under $191M Award

United Launch Alliance has won a potential $191.1 million contract to help the U.S. Air Force send into orbit a new satellite designed for space test missions.

The Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT)-Boeing (NYSE: BA) joint venture will produce a launch vehicle and support mission integration, spaceflight worthiness and launch operations of the Space Test Program-3 satellite, the Defense Department said Thursday.

The Air Force picked ULA almost nine months after the military branch posted a request for proposals for the STP-3 Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle contract on FedBizOpps.

Two bids were submitted to the Space and Missile Systems Center’s launch systems enterprise directorate for the firm-fixed-price contract and work will occur in Alabama, Colorado and Florida through August 31, 2019.

The service branch obligated $184.9 million at the time of award from its fiscal year 2017 space procurement, research, development, test and evaluation funds.
