DISA Seeks More Contractors for $900M Proliferated Low-Earth Orbit Contract

The Defense Information Systems Agency is inviting companies to bid for spots on a potential 10-year, $900 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity deal to deliver proliferated low-Earth orbit services and capabilities to the Department of Defense.

Interested parties can submit proposals for the PLEO Satellite-Based Services contract until May 31, 2024, according to the notice posted on SAM .gov.

The request for proposals indicates that each award under the deal will have a minimum value of $2,000. Work will be performed inside and outside of the contiguous United States.

The DOD seeks private-sector PLEO constellations to enhance the resilience of satellite communications, remote sensing and other capabilities. Services acquired under the contract are expected to support defense and federal agencies and combatant commands.

DISA launched the PLEO SBS contract in July, selecting SpaceX, OneWeb Technologies and 14 other companies to participate. Later, the agency added AT&T, Honeywell Aerospace, Iridium Communications and Lynk Global to the roster of vendors.
