A BAE Systems division has won a potential $12 billion contract to integrate and engineer intercontinental ballistic missiles for the U.S. Air Force.
The company’s technology solutions and services unit will continue to serve as the lead systems integrator and provide professional services for the ICBM program at Hill Air Force Base in Utah, the Department of Defense said Friday.
BAE is currently helping the military branch sustain the weapon as part of an eight-year, $534 million contract awarded in July 2013.
According to solicitation documents, the Integration Support Contract 2.0 covers support for Minuteman III and the next-generation ground-based strategic deterrent missile or any future ICBM weapon system developed throughout the duration of the contract.
The Air Force Nuclear Weapon Center received five proposals for the cost-plus-award-fee contract through a competitive acquisition process and expects the follow-on ISC work to conclude by Dec. 24, 2040.
