BAE Systems has won a contract to provide a range of services to support space and mission defense worth as much as $220 million over three years.

Under the contract, BAE Systems will bid on task orders with four other companies to support various missions of the US Army Space and Missile Defense Command (SMDC) and the US Army Forces Strategic Command.

The selection will enable BAE Systems to expand on its current support of the Army’s space and missile defense activities. The primary focus of the new contact — called Test Execution Services and Launch Augmentation (TESTLA) — will be to help SMDC meet testing objectives in several areas, including integrated missile defense, warfighter weapon development, homeland security, cyber technology, and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance.

“Winning TESTLA builds on our long-standing relationship with SMDC,” said Tom White, senior director of Mission Support Solutions at BAE Systems. “The work will also position us for additional growth in the military space market.”

Since 2006, BAE Systems has provided engineering and technical services under SMDC’s Concepts and Operations for Space and Missile Defense Integration Capabilities (COSMIC) contract. Under that contract, the company performs development and integration of electronic systems for surveillance and reconnaissance missions. The TESTLA win, combined with the current work, positions BAE Systems for an upcoming competition for the Development, Demonstration and Integration contract, or D3I, which COSMIC will transition into.
