AQYR Awarded $100M Contract

October 6, 2016

AQYR Technologies, Inc. announced that it has been awarded a $100 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity production contract.  The contract allows AQYR to provide Global Broadcast Service (GBS) Rucksack Portable Receive Suites (AN/PRS-12) and Suitcase Portable Receive Suites (AN/PRS-11), spares, training, support and engineering services to the Air Force and other branches of the U.S. military. This sole-source award is the result of a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) initially granted by the Air Force Research Laboratories. Initial funding of $13.95 million was received at the time of award. The Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, Hanscom Air Force Base, Massachusetts, is the contracting activity.

Both systems are highly-portable, rugged satellite receive suites that can be deployed and operated by a single user. The AN/PRS-12 weighs just under 20 pounds in tactical carry mode and the AN/PRS-11 weighs just under 32 pounds. Earlier configurations have been in service with Special Operations forces deployed overseas. “The award is the culmination of a decade long partnership, working side by side with the Warfighter and the Global Broadcast Service (GBS) Joint Program Office. It is a SBIR success for all involved” said AQYR’s President, Laura Z. Dion.
