Boeing's Directed Energy and Strategic Systems business has won a $275 million U.S. Air Force award to advance ground-based space superiority capabilities.

The contract is an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract issued by the Air Force Research Laboratory at Kirtland Air Force Base in New Mexico, the Department of Defense said in reporting the award.

Under terms of the contract, the company will research, engineer, and manage a program to advance scientific and technical knowledge of ground-based space-superiority capabilities and technology. It will then apply and transition that knowledge to achieve Air Force and national goals.

Work on the project will be conducted at Kirtland AFB and in Maui, Hawaii. Three task orders for the program are expected to be completed by late November 2020.

Fiscal 2016 research, development, test and evaluation funds in the amount of $987,000; and operation and maintenance funds in the amount of $1.513 million are being obligated at the time of award.
