The foreign military sales contract, which involves the governments of Afghanistan, Iraq, Kenya, Lebanon, Ukraine and Tunisia, also includes options for contractor unique spare parts.

Bids were solicited online for the firm-fixed-price multi-year deal, though AM General was the only group to submit an offer.

Labor will be conducted in Mishawaka, Ind. and is expected to be finished on April 29, 2016.

The DoD will be awarding Navy contracts benefitting unmanned maritime systems to seven companies, Exelis, Applied Research Associates, Science Applications International, Lockheed Martin Mission Systems and Training, Camber, MAR Range Services and ManTech Advanced Systems International.

Differing amounts of award money will be given to the companies, with all of the contracts having a starting value greater than $100 million: some exceed $200 million. All of the companies will have the chance to compete for task orders as they are issued during the order period.

According to the DoD, the companies will “provide specification and design, fabrication, installation, test and evaluation, fielding, maintenance, training, and configuration and program management of both hardware and software in support of unmanned maritime systems, both surface and subsurface, engaged in waterborne and underwater mine countermeasures.”

The three-year indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity, cost-plus-fixed-fee contract includes two one-year options.

The contracts were competitively acquired through a request for proposal on the Federal Business Opportunities website.

Most of the labor (70 percent) will be performed in San Diego, with the rest being conducted outside of the U.S. The work should be finished on July 5, 2018.

Lockheed Martin Space Systems will be awarded a $27.4 million Navy contract for “long lead material and the labor, planning and scheduling necessary to support the fiscal 2015 Trident II D5 missile production schedule.”

The unpriced-letter contract was a sole source acquisition.

Labor will be conducted in Sunnyvale, Calif. and should be finished on Sept. 30, 2020.
