Air Force Awards $1B TETRAS II Contract

The Air Force Test Center has announced 46 winners (jump to Awardees) of the $1 billion Test & Evaluation Technologies for Ranges, Armaments & Spectrum (TETRAS) II IDIQ. TETRAS II will support the ongoing mission of the test community to develop and integrate highly specialized technologies required to meet DoD test user systems under test and facilities needs for Developmental Test (DT) and Operational Test (OT) capabilities.

The IDIQ is a follow-on to the $1 billion TETRAS IDIQ awarded to 14 companies in 2017. All contractors that won task orders under the prior IDIQ also won seats under TETRAS II. 49 offers for the solicitation that closed in September 2022 were received.

TETRAS II Objectives

The primary objective of TETRAS II is to provide the 96th Range Group and other Department of Defense customers with the capability to meet the need to urgently develop and modify T&E systems and facilities and to support mandatory radio frequency (RF) spectrum transition plans as the test community employs technologies to ensure the performance of 5th generation weapons and cyber systems and begins the process of validating and transitioning to 6th generation technologies.

Task areas under TETRAS II include:

  1. Command, Control, Communications, Computer, Cybersecurity, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C5ISR)
  2. Munitions/Armaments (current and future)
  3. Electronic Combat/Threats/Cyber
  4. Spectrum Improvements/Relocation/Access

Additional information about the objectives of the contract is available in the Pre-Proposal conference slides.
