Peraton has landed a potential five-year, $1.8B indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract from NASA to provide tracking, telemetry and command services for near-Earth missions.
The company will provide tracking, command and telemetry services through the Space Exploration Network Services and Evolution contract, which includes a 90-day phase-in period that will commence July 3 and an ordering period of five years, NASA said Wednesday.
Scope of work will include systems integration, development, operations, maintenance, sustainment, engineering and architectural efforts.
The agency noted that Peraton will help sustain tracking and data relay satellites, update space communication networks and implement communications link analysis, network loading assessments and electromagnetic spectrum management for future customer missions.
Contract work is scheduled to occur through Sept. 30, 2024, and will take place at NASA flight centers located in Florida, New Mexico, Virginia and Maryland.
The company will also provide services at non-agency sites as part of the SENSE IDIQ.
