Peraton to work on branch's strategic weapons systems
Herndon-based national security contractor Peraton announced Monday it has been awarded a $102 million follow-on contract by the U.S. Navy Strategic Systems Programs (SSP) for work on the branch’s strategic weapons systems.
Under the engineering services contract, Peraton’s services will include acquisition, development, deployment and operational support of the reentry body aspects of the Navy’s Fleet Ballistic Missile (FBM).
“Receiving the recompete award for this program further demonstrates the longstanding, trusted partnership between the U.S. Navy and Peraton and represents a critical next step in the modernization of our national defense capabilities,” Roger Mason, Peraton president of the space, intelligence and cyber sector, said in a statement.
Peraton has worked with the SSP for more than 60 years. The company will continue to support the current reentry body development, refurbishment and life extension programs through technical, programmatic, system safety and operational services.
The bulk of contract work will be conducted in Colorado, with additional work to be performed in Washington, D.C., New Mexico, Florida and Nebraska.
Peraton focuses its work on warfighting domains in space, cyber and intelligence and builds mission capability solutions. The company employs 3,500 people across the U.S. and Canada.
