WASHINGTON — The Space Rapid Capabilities Office (SpRCO) has tapped 20 firms to compete for up to $1 billion in task orders for command and control software to manage future highly maneuverable satellites.

The indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contract for SpRCO’s Rapid Resilient Command and Control, nicknamed R2C2, project “will develop, integrate, and demonstrate capabilities for an end-to-end satellite operations (SatOps) ground system with the capability to fly Dynamic Space Operations (DSO) missions, leveraging a commercial cloud architecture,” an SpRCO spokesperson told Breaking Defense in an email.

Using a small business set aside fund, the ID/IQ has a five-year ordering period with two additional one-year options, and SpRCO intends to start competing individual task orders over the next couple of months.

“R2C2 will acquire software systems in bite-size pieces — delivering timely SatOps capabilities to on-orbit mission partners and providing operators automation and a common user experience across satellite missions. This IDIQ builds upon and scales a current prototype satellite operations system which is going through an integration, demonstration, and test campaign,” the spokesperson explained.
