The U.S. Navy has selected nine companies for a potential eight-year, $249.7 million contract to design, produce, install and test unmanned hardware and software platforms.
Contractors will compete for task orders to provide the military branch a range of technical support services for unmanned waterborne and underwater mine countermeasures systems, the Department of Defense said Tuesday.
The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract has a $118.8 million initial value over four years and would reach the ceiling amount if the Navy exercises all four one-year option periods.
Naval Information Warfare Systems Command received 13 offers for this multiple-award acquisition effort.
Seventy-five percent of work will take place in San Diego and the remaining 25 percent will occur in locations outside the continental U.S. The Navy intends to obligate fiscal 2021 funds upon issuance of task orders.
The awardees are:
- Applied Research Associates
- Gryphon Technologies
- Huntington Ingalls Industries (NYSE: HII)
- ISPA Technology
- Leidos (NYSE: LDOS)
- Oasis Systems
- Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAIC)
- Serco Inc.
