UK-based technology company QinetiQ has won a 5-year contract from the US Space Development Agency. The contract goes to QinetiQ’s US arm based in Virginia.

The contract, worth $224 million (€207.3m), is for systems engineering and technical assistance for the Agency’s upcoming mesh network and in particular its Proliferated Warfighter Space Architecture which is itself projected to eventually have hundreds of satellites.

QinetiQ will supply management and professional services, acquisition support, and engineering and technical analysis needed to deliver the project’s systems, said a DoD contract announcement.

The contract was won by Avantus Federal which QinetiQ acquired in November 2022.
