Northrop Grumman Systems Corp. has been awarded a $48,235,113 single award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract (N65236-20-D-8012) with provisions for cost-plus, fixed-fee and firm-fixed-price task/delivery orders for the procurement of Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) to legacy Ultra High Frequency (UHF) Satellite Communications Gateway Component systems and services.

The contract includes a five-year ordering period, a two-year option period and one six-month option to extend services in accordance with Federal Acquisition Regulation 52.217-8.  The option periods, if exercised, will bring the cumulative value of this contract to an estimated $65,214,634.  Contract funds in the amount of $25,000 will be obligated at the time of award. 

Naval Information Warfare Center Atlantic, Charleston, South Carolina, is the contracting activity.
