ISR IDIQ contracts awarded
The US Navy has issued multiple award contracts (MAC) on 29 February 2012 as part of programmes to provide warfighters with improved battlefield awareness.
According to US Naval Air Systems Command, AAI, Insitu, and CSC were each awarded indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contracts for the procurement of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) services. The cumulative amount for the MAC over a five-year period is $874 million.
US Naval Air Systems Command said that with the IDIQ contracts, the government will place individual task orders against the MAC for land-based and sea-based requirements. AAI and Insitu are eligible to compete for both sea- and land-based task orders. CSC may compete for land-based task orders.
Tasks performed under this contract will require the contractors to provide 24/7 ISR services, including all planning, coordination, certification, installation, pre-deployment, deployment, logistics, maintenance, flying and post-deployment efforts. The ISR services contract is in direct support of worldwide combat missions including round-the-clock imagery and other sensor capability in support of both sea- and land-based missions.
