United Launch Alliance has received a potential one-year, $832.4 million contract modification from the U.S. Air Force to continue to provide program management and mission assurance support for the Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle program.
The Boeing (NYSE: BA) and Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) joint venture will also perform systems engineering, vehicle integration, launch infrastructure sustainment and maintenance and range operations services for EELV under the cost-plus-incentive-fee modification, the Defense Department said Wednesday.
Work will occur in Centennial, Colorado, through Sept. 30, 2018.
The service branch’s Space and Missile Systems Center will obligate $150.9 million in space procurement funds for fiscal years 2016 and 2017 at the time of award.
ULA also provides launch vehicle production services for the Air Force’s new Atlas V rocket configuration under a separate $208 million contract modification awarded in May.
