Perspecta wins $112M Space Development Agency contract
Chantilly company to provide systems engineering, integration work
Chantilly-based federal contractor Perspecta Inc. announced Monday that it has received a potential five-year, $112 million contract to perform systems engineering and integration (SE&I) work for the newly established Space Development Agency (SDA).
Work on the project started in late October under an initial $17.8 million task order. Under the contract, Perspecta engineers and architects will develop infrastructure to ensure operations of the National Defense Space Architecture’s (NDSA) Transport Layer, Tracking Layer and ground segment 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,” Jeff Bohling, Perspecta’s senior vice president of the defense group, said in a statement. “Our sophisticated, scalable SE&I expertise will support the U.S. government in maintaining a multidomain technological and military advantage in an era of increasing threat and international competition.”
Perspecta employs more than 14,000 workers and won several large federal contracts this past year, including an $824 million, five-year deal with the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency and a $657 million extension on its Next Generation Enterprise Services contract to continue IT services for the U.S. Department of the Navy.
