Voly Defense Solutions can compete for missionized prototype delivery orders through the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, the Department of Defense said Monday.
Prototyping efforts will involve the development of a modular air platform with software payloads and a core autonomy system to support manned-unmanned teaming functions.
Voly joins a pool of nine companies the branch selected in September to participate in the Skyborg program.
USAF awarded Boeing (NYSE: BA), General Atomics and Kratos Defense & Security Solutions (Nasdaq: KTOS) separate 24-month contracts worth $77.8M combined in early December to build Skyborg prototypes for the operational experimentation.
The AF Life Cycle Management received 18 offers for the IDIQ via a competitive acquisition process. Contract work will take place in locations specified at the order-level through July 2026.
