Small biz gets big AF contract
The Air Force Space Command's 30th Space Wing at Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif., awarded the $429 million Western Range Operations Communications and Information contract to InDyne Inc. It is one of the largest federal IT contracts ever for a small business.
InDyne, which specializes in information systems, science and engineering, and technical and administrative services, partnered with Northrop Grumman's IT division on the contract.
Under the eight-year, cost-plus-incentive-fee and award-fee contract, InDyne will support systems for communications, weather, early warning, surveillance, navigation, space control, satellite operations and space testing activities, the company said.
The work entails consolidating six contracting efforts into one comprehensive operations and maintenance contract for the 30th Space Wing, officials said.
