US-based company InDyne has secured a $417.8m contract with the US Air Force (USAF) to provide operations and maintenance services for the solid state phased array radar system (SSPARS).

Under the terms of the firm-fixed-price contract, the company will be responsible for providing the entire range of non-personal services, administrative, financial and managerial resources required on a continuous 24/7 basis to support the five SSPARS installations or sites.

Work will be carried out at the (USAF) Beale Air Force Base (AFB) in California, Cape Cod Air Force Station (AFS) in Massachusetts, Clear AFS in Alaska, and Thule Air Base in Greenland, in addition to the Royal Air Force Fylingdales, UK.

The SSPARS sites offer a wide range of capabilities to the USAF, which includes sea‐launched ballistic missile warning, ballistic missile early warning and space surveillance, ground‐based midcourse defence programmes, military satellite communications systems maintenance, communications-electronic systems, and precision measurement equipment calibration and maintenance.

“The USAF’s SSPARS is a complex network of radars that is capable of tracking approximately 10,000 objects orbiting the Earth.”

Work on the project is expected to be completed by 30 April 2026.

Fiscal 2018 operations and maintenance funds with the total value of $34.59m are being obligated at the time of award.
