ULA to Help Launch 2 AFSPC Satellites Under Potential $355M Contract

United Launch Alliance has won a potential two-year, $354.8 million contract to provide launch and mission services to deliver two Air Force Space Command satellites into orbit.

The Boeing (NYSE: BA)-Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) joint venture will conduct launch vehicle production, mission integration, launch operations, spaceflight worthiness and mission-unique efforts for the AFSPC-8 and AFSPC-12 satellites slated to launch in 2020, the Defense Department said Wednesday.

AFSPC-8 mission will consist of two identical Geosynchronous Space Situational Awareness Program satellites while AFSPC-12 will comprise a forward space vehicle and an aft SV, according to the U.S. Air Force website.

The service branch will obligate the full contract amount at the time of award from its fiscal 2017 and fiscal 2018 space procurement; and fiscal 2018 research, development, test and evaluation funds.

The Launch Systems Enterprise Directorate’s Contracting Division at the AFSPC Space and Missile Systems Center received two offers for the firm-fixed-price contract through a competitive acquisition.
