Eight companies have won task order contracts from the Defense Microelectronics Activity to support the Advanced Technology Support Program IV (ATSP4).
The winners are:
Aeroflex is a newcomer to this contract as all the others are incumbents. Under the old contract, Raytheon has booked the most task orders with $1.9 billion in work, followed closely by Northrop Grumman with $1.8 billion, according to Deltek.
BAE had $590.1 million in task orders, Lockheed booked $390 million and General Dynamics has $296.3 million. Both Boeing and Honeywell had under $100 million in task orders, according to Deltek data.
Since 2005, more than $5.1 billion in task orders have flown through the contract.
Under the new contract, the maximum ceiling—options included—is $7.2 billion, according to the Defense Department.
The ATSP4 program gives agencies streamlined access to state-of-the-art technologies and engineering capability through defense industry resources and the engineering expertise of the Defense Microelectronics Agency, according to its website.
The program is designed to resolve problems with obsolete, unreliable, unmaintainable, underperforming, or incompatible electronics hardware and software through development of advanced technology insertions and applications to meet the requirements of the Department of Defense for a quick reaction capability.
Users of ATSP4 include the Air Force, Air National Guard, Army, DARPA, Transportation Department, EPA, Navy, Marine Corps, NASA, National Imagery and Mapping Agency, NOAA, and the NSA.
The contract runs through March 2028.
Nine companies bid on the ATSP4 contract, the Defense Department said.
