The U.S. Navy has awarded Lockheed Martin Space Systems a $112.7 million cost-plus-award-fee, firm-fixed-price, Indefinite-Delivery/Indefinite-Quantity (IDIQ) contract for Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) space segment sustainment. The Navy announced the sustainment contract on Wednesday. 

MUOS is a narrowband military satellite communications system comprising five geosynchronous satellites and four geographically dispersed relay ground stations that provides net-centric communications capabilities while supporting legacy terminals. In October 2019, the MOUS was deemed ready for full operational use. General Dynamics Mission Systems is the ground segment provider. 

Work will primarily be performed in Littleton, Colorado and Sunnyvale, California, and is expected to be complete by March 2030. The Naval Information Warfare Systems Command in San Diego, California, is the contracting activity.
