Principle Contractor: AeroVironment, Incorporated
Date Reported: 6/2/2009
Contract Details: AeroVironment, Inc., Monrovia, Calif., was awarded on May 28, 2009, a $5,437,556 cost-plus-fixed-fee contract in which AeroVironment, Inc., (AV) offers DARPA the Stealthy, Persistent, Perch and Stare Air Vehicle System (SP2S). The (SP2S) system fills the need for close-range surveillance and reconnaissance missions. This system also combines the strategic capability of stealthy operations with mission-adaptable perch and stare observation modes. The current SP2S Phase 11B program ends with delivery quantity five (5) Block 0 systems and the initial military user evaluation (LTE). The purpose of the LTE is to verify the utility of such a small VTOL perch and Stare system (currently no such system exists). It is also the first opportunity to identify the shortfalls and areas within the system that require improvements or design changes to meet the needs of the users. The additional work was required to take the military users feedback and refine/upgrade the system to meet diverse requirements of a wide group of users. This task would then result in the delivery of ten (10) upgraded systems for a second LTE. Work is to be performed at Simi Valley, Calif., (85 precent), and at Stanford University, Stanford, Calif., (15 precent), with an estimated completion date of May 3, 2010. Bids were solicited by Broad Agency Announcement with over 100 bids received. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, Contracts Management Office, Arlington, Va., is the contracting activity (HR0011-07-C-0075).
