Sierra Nevada Books $400M Air Force Contract for Airborne Mission Networking System Kits

The U.S. Air Force has awarded Sierra Nevada Corp. a $400 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract to provide airborne mission networking system kits for the service branch’s MC-130 aircraft fleet.

Sierra Nevada will also perform contractor logistics support, engineering services, program management and field service representative support under the sole-source contract, the Department of Defense said Tuesday.

Work will occur in Colorado, Maryland and Air Force bases in Georgia and Florida through June 27, 2029. 

The Air Force Life Cycle Management Center at Robins Air Force Base in Georgia is the contracting activity and will obligate funds using the service’s fiscal 2023 and 2024 procurement funds and fiscal 2024 operation and maintenance allocation.

Sierra Nevada’s AbMN suite is designed to enhance interoperability between special operations platforms and other military platforms.

In May 2020, the company delivered the first MC-130J equipped with the secure communications suite to Air Force Special Operations Command.
