This 10-year award provides CGI the opportunity to compete for task orders with an unlimited ceiling value to research, develop, support, maintain and operate manned, unmanned and optionally manned platforms and robotics, such as satellites, launch vehicles and related services.
Known for its ability to build complex, mission-critical space software systems and integration of complex hardware systems with the right software solutions, CGI is a recognized thought leader in space security and applications, and is considered a European leader in the ground segment of military satellite communications.
GSA developed the ASTRO master contract primarily to help the U.S. Department of Defense streamline the acquisition process for the military’s combatant commands. The master contract opens acquisition to all federal agencies through FEDSIM, a provider of assisted acquisition services for federal agencies, to obtain manned and unmanned platforms and services for the next 10 years, with no maximum dollar ceiling.
“We leveraged our long history of helping clients implement complex, mission-critical space software systems, as well as other software development and systems integration work for this win,” said CGI Federal President Stephanie Mango. “With our space work long established in Europe, we’re just beginning to build our presence here in North America, and we’re thrilled to bring our proven track record and solutions to the U.S. federal government market.”
“With a 40-plus year track record of supporting the space industry and serving the federal government, CGI is pleased to bring its thought leadership and technical expertise to deliver services through GSA’s ASTRO contract,” said Mike Pullen, Vice-President, Consulting Services for CGI Federal. “We look forward to working with our partners to help make ASTRO a success."
