Raytheon receives GPNTS support IDIQ contract
Raytheon has been awarded a $61.5 million IDIQ contract for Global Positioning System-Based Positioning, Navigation and Timing Service (GPNTS) software support for the US Naval Information Warfare Systems Command.
GPNTS is used to receive, process and distribute three-dimensional position, velocity, acceleration, attitude, time and frequency in the formats required by shipboard user systems.
Raytheon’s software support will include development, integration and test of improvements, correction of deficiencies, preparation and delivery of engineering interim/final software builds and inputs for the GPNTS software requirements and configuration baseline.
The contract includes a base ordering period of five years, with a subsequent three-year option and a final two-year option for a total of ten years should all options be exercise.
Work is expected to be complete by November 2024.
