Navy hands down $1.7B sea-land unmanned ISR services contract

The Navy has awarded four companies positions on a potential five-year, $1.73 billion contract for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance services to support unmanned aircraft systems.

Contractors will compete for individual task orders to carry out sea- and land-based unmanned ISR services through June 2022. The Navy received four offers for the contract that contains one base years and four one-year options.

Awardees are:

  • Academi Training Center
  • AAI Corp., a Textron subsidiary
  • Insitu, a Boeing subsidiary

Academi Training Center and PAE ISR are only eligible for land-based task orders. AAI and Insitu are able to bid on both the sea and land portion.

Services include personnel, non-developmental equipment, certifications, installation, operation, maintenance, sustainment, spares and product support.

AAI and Insitu are also on the Special Operations Command's potential six-year, $475 million Mid-Endurance Unmanned Aircraft Systems III contract awarded earlier this week.
