Anduril Industries has been awarded a $967million USSOCOM contract for a counter-unmanned systems (CUxS) systems integration partner.
US DoD Contract Notice, Washington DC, 20 January 2022: Anduril Industries Inc., Irvine, California, was awarded an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract (H92402-22-D-0001) with a maximum ceiling of $967,599,957 for a counter-unmanned systems, systems integration partner (SIP). Fiscal 2022 operations and maintenance funds in the amount of $1,096,092 were obligated at time of the award.
The work will be performed in various locations within and outside the continental US, and is expected to be completed by Jan. 19, 2032. This contract was competitively awarded under the authority of 10 U.S. Code § 2371b(a)(2)(B) for a follow-on production contract. Twelve proposals were received in response to the SIP prototype project opportunity notice. US Special Operations Command, MacDill Air Force Base, Florida, is the contracting activity.
Background: USSOCOM SIP Prototype Project Opportunity Notice, November 2020. Special Operations Forces (SOF) operate in ever-increasing complex environments. On the precipice of a revolution in military affairs, our adversaries have harnessed the exponential growth of Unmanned Systems (UxS) and consumer-based technology to supplant US air supremacy. Service-provided solutions have begun to address the modern threat, however, fail to meet unique requirements driven by the innate need for SOF to deploy optimised CUxS solutions that reduce Operator burden. USSOCOM requires a System Integration Partner (SIP) to bring together Family of Systems (FoS) solutions that combine various sensors and effectors to meet the evolving needs of SOF operators.
