Peraton will continue to help the U.S. Navy develop, field and operate reentry body systems for the military branch's Fleet Ballistic Missiles under a follow-on contract worth potentially $102M over five years.
The company said Monday it will assist the Navy in efforts to refresh and extend the service life of the segment that helps an FBM weapon reenter the atmosphere.
Work will primarily take place in Colorado and also include evaluation of the system's ability to withstand harsh environments.
"Receiving the recompete award for this program further demonstrates the longstanding, trusted partnership between the U.S. Navy and Peraton and represents a critical next step in the modernization of our national defense capabilities," said Roger Mason, president of Peraton's space, intelligence and cyber sector and a four-time Wash100 Award recipient.
The Navy's Strategic Systems Programs office issued the contract with one base year plus four option years.
