Awardees will compete to provide "highly-specialized technologies" for the testing and evaluation work.
The Air Force has awarded 46 companies positions on a five-year, $999.5 million contract vehicle to develop technologies for testing and evaluating weapons systems.
Companies will compete for delivery orders to provide what the Air Force terms "highly-specialized technologies" for T&E efforts focused on munitions, electronic combat platforms and systems in C5ISR — command, control, computers, communications, cyber, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance.
The Air Force received a total of 49 bids for this second iteration of the Test & Evaluation Technologies for Ranges, Armaments & Spectrum vehicle.

Iteration number one of TETRAS went to 14 companies in 2017 at a $998 million ceiling, but the Air Force used lowest-price technically acceptable criteria to make those awards. TETRAS II appears to be more based on best-value.
Based on GovTribe data, every incumbent of significance was selected for the new vehicle. TETRAS I has seen approximately 47% of the ceiling obligated to-date, while Intuitive Research and Technology Corp. has received the largest volume of orders on the current contract at $204 million.
