The Missile Defense Agency is announcing the award of a sole-source cost-plus-award-fee modification to Raytheon Missile Systems Co., Tucson, Ariz., under the HQ0006-10-C-0005 contract, P00017. The total value of this award is $48,014,215, increasing the total contract value from $286,518,085 to $334,532,300. Under this modification, the contractor will continue to perform engineering services and material for systems engineering, design and development support, and initial hardware fabrication for the Standard Missile-3 Block IIA missile including continued divert and attitude control system development work. The work will be performed in Tucson, Ariz. The performance period is through Oct. 31, 2011. Fiscal 2011 research, development, test and evaluation funds will be used to incrementally fund this effort. Contract funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year. This is not a Foreign Military Sales acquisition. The Missile Defense Agency, Dahlgren, Va., is the contracting activity.
The US Missile Defense Agency will continue to keep threats ashore by continuing “to support the European Phased Adaptive Approach (EPAA) to protect our European NATO allies and deployed forces from ballistic missile attacks”.
