Army Taps i3 for $151M Flight Testing System Development Project

Integration Innovation Inc. has secured a potential five-year, $150.7 million contract from the U.S. Army to develop a prototype system for conducting hypersonic flight tests with the use of unmanned aerial vehicles and sensors.

The Army Rapid Capabilities and Critical Technologies Office received one bid for the cost-plus-fixed-fee contract and obligated $5 million at the time of award from its fiscal 2020 research, development, test and evaluation funds, the Department of Defense said Friday.

Contract work will take place in Alabama and California through March 25, 2026.

According to i3’s website, the company operates a UAV-based range designed to support the terminal phase of hypersonic missile flight and equipped with the MQ-9 Reaper and RQ-4 Global Hawk drones to facilitate data collection.

Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) closed its acquisition of the hypersonics portfolio from i3 in November.
