ARCTEC Receives $75.8M in Radar Support Contracts
ARCTEC Services in Colorado Springs, CO recently received two radar support contract modifications from the US military. One covers the ballistic missile early warning and space tracking radars, while the other covers the Alaska Radar System.
The $42.5 million fixed-priced incentive contract modification funds option year 6 (FY 2006: Oct 1, 2005 – Sept 30, 2006) to manage, operate, maintain, and logistically support the solid state phase array radar systems at Clear Air Force Station, AK; Beale Air Force Base, CA; Cape Cod Air Force Station, MA; Thule Air Base, Greenland; and Royal Air Force Fylingdales, UK. Clear AFS, Thule, and Fylingdales are all part of the BMEWS (Ballistic Missile Early Warning System), while Cape Cod AFS and Beale AFB are part of a related effort called PAVE PAWS that uses similar massive Solid-State Phased-Array Radar Systems (SSPARS).
Work will be complete by September 2006. The 21st Space Wing, Peterson Air Force Base Colo. issued the contract (F05604-99-C-9005/P00460).
