With revenues of $14 billion and approximately 55,000 employees, Jacobs, headquartered in Dallas, Texas, provides a full range of services, including project delivery for government and private sector, technical and scientific services, and consulting services.
The company’s mantra is to challenge today to reinvent tomorrow. Their mission is to turn abstract ideas into realities that transform the world by solving critical problems for scientific discoveries, advanced manufacturing, operational advancements, critical outcomes, resilient environments, and thriving cities.
The ASTRO program is sponsored by the Department of Defense (DoD) and managed by GSA’s Federal Systems Integration and Management Center (FEDSIM). Jacobs has won seven awards on the GSA’s ASTRO contract. Multiple awards that are listed as Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contracts have no defined ceiling value but are expected to have a multi-billion dollar budget over a potential 10-year ordering period.
The scope of ASTRO includes the entire life cycle of development, integration, operation, and maintenance of manned, unmanned, and optionally manned systems, robotics, sensors, vehicles, and platforms. The program aims to provide the Department of Defense with innovative and future technologies, products, solutions, and capabilities across all domains as the Department operationalizes convergence.
The company will also cover the services that support these systems and the analysis and visualization of the data they collect.
Bruce Crawford, Senior Vice President of Strategic Development at Jacobs (retired), explained, “These awards on GSA’s highly anticipated ASTRO contract enable Jacobs to deliver full lifecycle digital solutions and cutting-edge technologies to ensure interoperability, resilience and assurance for the DoD and the joint forces. At Jacobs, we’re harnessing our unique blend of mission experience, cyber and intelligence capabilities, and user-informed innovation to enable decision dominance among our defense and U.S. federal clients.”
