Raytheon has won a three-year, $575 million task order to update and sustain software for the Army as the service branch looks to modernize its missile defense and other technology systems.
The General Services Administration awarded the order under its potential $60 billion OASIS professional services vehicle. This Strategic Systems Engineering Services order is one of three acquisitions GSA is supporting the Army's Software Engineering Directorate along with Virtual Systems and Battlefield Systems.
Raythone's work under the SSES order will encompass areas of software engineering such as rapid prototyping, hardware development, testing and validation.
SAIC is the incumbent for Strategic Systems, according to Deltek. As previously reported by Washington Technology, SAIC won the potential five-year, $404 million Virtual Systems order but is awaiting a protest ruling with a decision expected this month.
These are two of several task orders under the Army's AMCOM Express vehicle that are transitioning to OASIS, which the Army committed to in 2015 at $500 million in annual spend.
Raytheon said in a release systems covered under the SSES order contract include missiles, launchers, radars, data mining, visualization, virtual operations centers and others used for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance.
Additionally, the company says it will focus on cyber resiliency of fielded systems. Raytheon will perform the work at the Army's Redstone, Ala.-based Aviation and Missile Research, Development and Engineering Center.
