Unmanned maritime system contractor Peraton has won a spot on an up to 10-year, USD 982.1 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity, multiple award contract (IDIQ-MAC) to support the US Navy’s Unmanned Surface Vehicle Family of Systems.
Earlier this month, a number of companies were selected by the navy for IDIQ-MAC.
Companies on the IDIQ-MAC, managed by Naval Sea Systems Command, will have the opportunity to compete in up to six awarded functional areas for individual delivery orders.
Peraton was selected to compete in all six categories — Payloads, Non-Payload Sensors, Mission Support Systems, Autonomy and Vehicle Control Systems, Ashore and Host Platform Elements, and Logistics and Sustainment.
The IDIQ-MAC has a five-year base period and one five-year ordering period option, which, if exercised, would bring the cumulative value of this contract to USD 982,100,000. The task orders issued under the IDIQ-MAC will help the Navy maintain and modernize to meet current and future operational requirements.
Contractors will compete for task orders to support the current Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV) systems and subsystems as well as future USV systems and subsystems for Program Executive Office Unmanned and Small Combatants (PEO USC), Program Management NAVSEA 406 (PMS 406).
In January, Peraton announced that it had recently received four U.S. Navy Unmanned Maritime Systems Support (UMSS) task orders valued at USD 27.45 million.
“Peraton has been a major supporter of the U.S. Navy’s Unmanned Underwater Vehicle Family of Systems for nearly two decades. As the Navy expands its Unmanned Surface Vehicle Family of Systems work, we are proud to be a part of this critical element of the Navy’s warfighting strategy for the future,” John Coleman, president, Defense and Homeland Security sector, commented.
