Amentum-Kupono Joint Venture Secures Spot on Air Combat Command RPASOC-E IDIQ
The U.S. Air Combat Command has awarded Koa Lani, a joint venture under the Small Business Administration’s mentor-protege program, a spot on the potential $785 million Remotely Piloted Aircraft Squadron Operations Center Enterprise support multiple-award contract.
The RPASOC-E contract is an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity vehicle that supports worldwide mission systems, equipment designs and development systems in support of combat air patrols. It supports users from the ACC, the U.S. Air Force Special Operations Command, the Air National Guard and the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center.
Koa Lani will be able to compete for task orders under the contract vehicle until May 2030, Amentum said Tuesday.
Karl Spinnenweber, president of Amentum’s Mission Readiness strategic business unit, said the award shows the company’s commitment to delivering mission success and to supporting small businesses under the SBA mentor-protege program. He added that Amentum has the experience to provide RPA support services that support critical missions.
Amentum has supported over 22,000 RPA combat sorties by the U.S. Air Force and has over 380,000 RPA flying hours in total.
Koa Lani is a joint venture between government contractor Amentum and Native Hawaiian Organization Kupono Government Services. In 2020, the JV secured a potential 10-year, $854 million contract from the U.S. Navy for Pacific Missile Range Facility management support services.
The SBA mentor-protege program allows small businesses to partner with experienced government contractors to improve and expand their practices and secure contract opportunities.
