Communications, cyber and intelligence operations solution provider Envistacom has secured two prime pool awards on the General Service Administration’s (GSA) ASTRO contract.

Under this indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract, Envistacom is required to offer mission support to the Department of Defense (DoD), as well as other federal agencies.

The two prime awards consist of development/systems integration, and research and development (R&D).

These awards will allow services being provided via the GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service (FEDSIM) over a ten-year period of performance, with a base period of five years and an optional extension of another five years.

ASTRO multiple-award IDIQ contract vehicle includes research, development, maintenance, and other support services.

Other operational services related to crewed, uncrewed, and optionally crewed platforms and robotics are also included in the contract vehicle.

Comprising ten pools, ASTRO is designed to meet the requirements of the US Department of Defense (DoD) Combatant Command mission.

Each pool represents domain areas such as aviation, ground, space, maritime, development/systems integration, data operations, research, support, and training, and mission operations.

Envistacom president Alan Carson said: “Through the new GSA ASTRO programme, Envistacom will provide the Department of Defense with innovative technologies and services that deliver new capabilities to our nation’s warfighters, ensuring the success of future missions.

“Our company has an excellent track record of providing systems integration and R&D solutions and services, and we look forward to working with GSA FEDSIM on this contract.”

Earlier this year, Envistacom secured a $235m prime contract from the US Army.

This three-year order was awarded on the firm’s prime contract by US Army Contracting Command using the ten-year, $5.1bn Global Tactical Communications Systems (GTACS) II contract vehicle.
