Indus Technology Inc. has a new opportunity to go after U.S. Navy electronics work.

The Navy awarded the San Diego-based small business an indefinite-quantity contract that could run for up to three years and has a ceiling of $21.8 million. Under the deal, Indus would work with the radio frequency and network systems support division at the U.S. Navy labs, aka Spawar Systems Center Pacific.

Under the indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity deal, Indus and two other companies will compete for task orders. The Navy can extend the contract two years at its option, bringing the total value of the work to $36.8 million.

Work will be performed in San Diego and on Navy ships, and will involve satellite communications systems, radio frequency systems and navigation systems.

Spawar Systems Center Pacific awarded the deal. Ten contractors submitted proposals through the Federal Business Opportunities website and the Spawar e-Commerce Central website.
