SDA Seeks Info on Warlock Capability for Tranche 2 Transport Layer Gamma Program - top government contractors - best government contracting event

The Space Development Agency is soliciting information on approaches that could be used to develop a warfighting payload capability as part of the second tranche of the Proliferated Warfighter Space Architecture’s transport layer.

SDA plans to deploy the Warlock capability as part of the PWSA T2TL Gamma satellites, according to a request for information posted Monday on SAM.gov.

The agency intends to field about 20 spacecraft with the Warlock payload “designed to close on future kill chains via the PWSA” and make data available to service members “at or ahead of the speed of the threat.”

According to the RFI, SDA is seeking information on technical designs, mission performance, costs, risks and security considerations to help inform the capability for the T2TL Gamma program.

T2TL will be composed of 216 satellites in Alpha, Beta and Gamma variants.

SDA issued the RFI days after it awarded York Space Systems a $615 million contract to build 62 Alpha satellites for T2TL.

In August, Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman secured $1.5 billion in prototype agreements to develop and operate 72 T2TL Beta satellites.

Responses to the RFI are due Nov. 6.
