Honeywell, AT&T Receive Potential $900M DISA Contract for Space Force SATCOM Services

The Defense Information Systems Agency has awarded AT&T and Honeywell Aerospace a potential 10-year, $900 indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for proliferated low-Earth orbit satellite-based services.

AT&T and Honeywell will provide low-latency satellite communications services to the U.S. Space Force, ensuring that operators will have reliable data across all warfighting domains. The contract has a base performance period of five years and a five-year option.

Work will be performed in different locations depending on each task order. The awards to AT&T and Honeywell bring the total number of PLEO contractors to 19, according to a notice posted on SAM .gov.

Iridium Communications had announced in September that it received a PLEO contract. According to Iridium, it will provide the Space Force with its Certus services, as well as weather-resilient global broadband and mid-band mobile voice and data services and terminals.

Viasat also announced in the same month that its Inmarsat Government unit was awarded the same contract. Viasat said Inmarsat Government will provide space relay services, an automated software-defined wide-area network and other PLEO capabilities backed by geosynchronous and non-geostationary orbit satellites supporting all warfighting domains.
