Potential Value of IDIQ Contract is $491 Million
General Dynamics SATCOM Technologies is one of seven contractors selected by the U.S. Navy to provide satellite communications systems and services under a potential five-year Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (ID/IQ) contract.
SATCOM Technologies was selected to provide products, systems and services in all seven categories of the procurement ranging from 1.0 to 2.4-meter terminals suitable for man portable, flyaway, trailer and vehicle mounted applications. Services will range from operations to logistics support.
While the contract has no initial award value; it has a maximum potential value of $491 million if all options are exercised. The equipment and services will be used by the Navy to provide satellite-based voice, video and data communications across various frequency bands. The program is managed by the Navy's Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center in Charleston, S.C.
Gary Kanipe, vice president of General Dynamics SATCOM Technologies, said, "This go-to contract vehicle continues to demonstrate SATCOM Technologies' relevance and value to the Navy. Our products, systems and services enable a critical common-link for networked and one-to-one satellite communications across the Department of Defense."
