Air Force Awards LMI $98M Contract to Deliver Modeling, Simulation Toolkit

LMI will deliver a modeling and simulation toolkit for space warfighting missions under a five-year, $98 million Small Business Innovation Research Phase III contract from the U.S. Air Force. 

LMI will provide its Rapid Analysis and Prototyping Toolkit for Resiliency to support the Space Security and Defense Program, which focuses on creating a resilient national security space capability, and the Space Warfighting Analysis Center, which examines alternative options to enhance existing space capabilities and build improved space architectures.

RAPTR will enable users to make informed decisions rapidly and plan for asset deployment to support critical operations, LMI said.

According to Mark Eddings, senior vice president of LMI’s space market, the effectiveness of tools and the readiness of U.S. forces to respond to threats will help ensure the United States maintains its dominance in an increasingly contested space domain.

Synaptech, which LMI acquired in 2022, developed RAPTR and previously held the SBIR Phase 1 and Phase 2 contracts for the software, SpaceNews reported.
