PAR Government Secures Position on Space Force’s $900M P-LEO Satellite Services Contract

The U.S. Space Force Commercial Satellite Communications Office has awarded PAR Government Systems a position on a new contract vehicle for procuring proliferated low-Earth orbit satellite services. 

The company is thus eligible to compete for task orders under the potential 10-year, $900 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract. The IDIQ spot was secured in partnership with space-based radar capabilities provider Iceye, PAR Government said.

The Space Force intends to acquire P-LEO satellite services to provide enhanced communication resiliency, redundancy and reliability to support the missions of U.S. military service branches, government agencies and international coalition partners. 

Michael Nelson, president of PAR Government, said his company offers its expertise in the development, management and delivery of commercial space-based services and products directly to the mobile platforms used by warfighters.

PAR Government is competing with 15 other awardees, including OneWeb and UltiSat, on the IDIQ.

UltiSat, which owns a global network of multiple satellite teleports, is an authorized government integrator for two on-orbit P-LEO services. It currently evaluates two additional services planned for launch between 2024 and 2025.

OneWeb, meanwhile, provides satellite connectivity via its existing space architecture.
