The U.S. Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center awarded Orbital Sciences Corp. a seven-year task order contract to provide target vehicles and related support for the Sounding Rockets Program-3 (SRP-3). Orbital was one of four companies selected for contracts that qualify them to compete for up to $250 million in launch services under the U.S. government’s indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity procurement approach. Orbital’s Launch Systems Group will carry out the SRP-3 activities at company facilities in Chandler, AZ. The Air Force’s Sounding Rockets Program supplies target, testbed, and special-purpose rockets that are used by the Air Force, other U.S. Department of Defense agencies, and NASA.
