Peraton Lands Potential $360M Contract to Analyze Air Force ICBM Software Safety

Peraton will help the U.S. Air Force analyze and address the safety risks of the branch’s intercontinental ballistic missile software under a potential 18-year, $360.4 million contract.

The company will perform ICBM risk management support work as part of the Nuclear Safety Cross-Check Analysis and Nuclear Safety Analysis and Technical Evaluation programs, the Department of Defense said Thursday.

The AF Nuclear Weapons Center will obligate $2.1 million in fiscal year 2021 operation and maintenance funds and $5.4 million in FY 2021 missile procurement funds for the two initial task orders under the sole-source indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract.

Contract work will take place in El Segundo, California, and Layton, Utah, through March 2039.

Under a separate $44 million award, Peraton will develop hardware and software for the U.S. Army’s Hypersonic Test Engineering, Mission Planning and Systems program.

Peraton is sponsoring GovCon Wire’s Defense Cybersecurity Forum scheduled for May 12. Click here to learn more.
