CHANTILLY, Va., Dec. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Perspecta Inc. (NYSE: PRSP), a leading U.S. government services provider, announced today that it has received an award to perform systems engineering and integration (SE&I) work for the newly established Space Development Agency (SDA). The single award, indefinite-delivery / indefinite-quantity contract, which represents new work for the company, has a ceiling of $112 million and an ordering period of five years. Work on the program commenced in late October under an initial $17.8 million task order.
Perspecta will deliver SE&I support for SDA's initial satellite constellation known as Tranche 0, a system designed to demonstrate the initial capabilities of the National Defense Space Architecture (NDSA). Under the terms of the agreement, Perspecta engineers and architects will develop infrastructure to ensure the NDSA Transport Layer, Tracking Layer and ground segment operate in unison to support warfighter mission scenarios and experiments.
"Warfighters on the ground depend on Perspecta every day to accomplish their missions and we're excited to extend our impact beyond the traditional battlefield," said Jeff Bohling, senior vice president of the defense group at Perspecta. "Our sophisticated, scalable SE&I expertise will support the U.S. government in maintaining a multi-domain technological and military advantage in an era of increasing threat and international competition."
Perspecta's expertise in the space ecosystem is essential to supporting the federal government's efforts in protecting the economic and national security interests of the country. The solution for SDA will build on the company's other space-related accomplishments for the intelligence community, the U.S. Department of Defense and civilian agencies.
