GlobalAOC World Services is planning to bid for the US Air Force (USAF) Space Command’s planned launch test range system (LTRS) integrated support contract (LISC) (OS) small business set-aside (SBSA) contract.
A number of US companies are planning to pursue the contract, which aims to strengthen support operations and communications sustainment work at the 45th Space Wing’s Eastern Range, located at Patrick Air Force Base in Florida, US.
Additional responsibilities under the contract include providing systems support at the 30th Space Wing (30 SW) at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, US.
Retired Air Force colonel and 45th Space Wing, Mission Support Group former commander Loretta Kelemen, who will serve as GlobalAOC general manager, said the company’s cost-conscious approach will ensure availability of a ‘go for launch’ range environment during severe budget constraints.
"Realistically applying the customer’s consolidation directives with our own managerial agility is the key to mission success here," Kelemen added.
GlobalAOC World Services chairman and chief executive officer, Sherri Bovino, said the decision to serve as the programme’s prime contractor was taken based on the company’s collaborative Large LISC work with Boeing.
”Our 25-year Kwajalein legacy and current operations around the world enable a solutions set that truly can meet the customer’s vision of the range tomorrow,” Bovino added.
GlobalAOC executive vice president Steve Carney said: "What we’ve done here is formed a well-designed and operationally nimble team that can deliver solutions that efficiently support range management transition at economies never before realized, while assuring 100% range readiness."
The Global Solutions Team includes Spatial Technologies, LJT & Associates, ARES Corporation, FK Logistics, ManTech International and Comprehensive Health Services.
