Millennium Space Systems Wins $414M SDA Fire Control Satellite Production Contract

Millennium Space Systems, a subsidiary of Boeing (NYSE: BA), has received a $414 million other transaction authority agreement from the Space Development Agency to build eight fire control satellites for the Proliferated Warfighter Space Architecture.

The satellites are scheduled for launch in the first quarter of fiscal year 2027 in support of PWSA’s Fire-control On Orbit-support-to-the-war Fighter program to demonstrate fire control-quality sensors to advance missile threat tracking, detection and warning capabilities, SDA said Tuesday.

“The FOO Fighter program will provide an operational demonstration of fire control efforts separate from, but complementary to, our missile warning/missile tracking and missile defense efforts already underway in the tranches,” said Derek Tournear, director of SDA and a previous Wash100 awardee.

In a source sought notice, SDA said the prototype satellites will be equipped with electro-optical/infrared sensors and each space vehicle will provide fire control capabilities for the PWSA low Earth orbit satellite constellation.
