Astronautics Corporation of America, in partnership with All Native Group (ANG), has won multiple contracts under the U.S. Air Force Air Combat Command Remotely Piloted Aircraft Squadron Operations Center Enterprise (RPA SOC-E).
ANG, the federal services division of Ho-Chunk, Inc., a Nebraska-based concern that seeks to diversify the revenue of, and provide employment for, the Winnebago Tribe, is a prime contractor for the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, which has a ceiling of $785 million.
Under the terms of the contract, Astronautics said that, along with ANG, it will compete for RPA SOC-E task orders through May 2030, to provide aerospace, cybersecurity, and infrastructure services, as well as data transmission and secure connectivity solutions.
Headquartered in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, and founded in 1959, Astronautics designs, develops, and manufactures secure avionics equipment and systems for commercial and military aerospace.
“This award confirms Astronautics’s proven leadership in developing aerospace cybersecurity solutions that enhance our national security, protect our military personnel, and enable mission success by protecting critical infrastructure from cyber threats,” said Dave Jones, manager of avionics security assurance. “Additionally, we are pleased to be collaborating with ANG to offer the RPA SOC-E the full range of Astronautics’s proven products—integrated avionics systems, secure connectivity solutions, and cybersecurity products and services.”
The RPA SOC-E sustains world mission systems in support of combat air patrols managed by the Air Combat Command, Air Force Special Operations Command, the Air National Guard, and the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center at Warner Robbins, Georgia.
