Johns Hopkins APL Receives $166M Task Order for Air Force Weapon Engineering Services

The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory will engineer systems for the U.S. Air Force’s intercontinental ballistic missile system modernization program under a $165.9 million task order.

Under the three-year award, APL will also continue to research and develop specialized functions to support the Sentinel weapon system, the Department of Defense said Tuesday.

The Air Force is obligating $13 million at the time of award from its R&D, test and evaluation funds for fiscal 2023.

APL booked a potential $530 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract in July 2021 for nuclear enterprise R&D efforts supporting Sentinel, formerly the Ground Based Strategic Deterrent system.

Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) is building the system under a $13.3 billion USAF award in 2020 to replace the Minuteman III weapon as the ground-based leg of the U.S. nuclear triad.
