Pentagon Awards $912 Million in Contracts Thursday

The Department of Defense issued 19 new contracts on Thursday worth a combined $911.7 million. Of these, the largest contract went to privately held Nomad Global Communication Solutions -- a $382.5 million contract to purchase commercial fire and emergency vehicles. No publicly traded companies won anything quite as lucrative, but they weren't left totally out in the cold, either:

  • Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT  ) was awarded a $42.4 million contract modification to begin collecting "non-recurring engineering" and long-lead materials needed to build satellites Nos. 5 and 6 for the space-based infrared systems (SBIRS) missile warning program. This contract runs through June 19, 2016.
     
  • SAIC (NYSE: SAI  ) won a $35.8 million cost-plus-incentive-fee contract to perform software engineering, hardware, integration, technical support, and training for the Integrated Strategic Planning and Analysis Network through Sept. 30, 2018.
