The SierTeK-Peerless Joint Venture has won a $9.2 million, five-year contract to provide Enduring Stockpile Management Support to the Air Force Nuclear Weapons Center to help maintain the nation’s nuclear stockpile.
The two companies that comprise the joint venture, SierTeK, Ltd. and Peerless Technologies Corporation, will provide engineering, analysis, management, and technical support services at Kirtland AFB in New Mexico, with a focus on cruise missile weapon systems and life extension efforts for the W80-4 nuclear warhead.
“We’re excited to further our relationship with the AFNWC and add to our workforce in New Mexico, said Julie Clark, Peerless Senior Vice President for Business Analytics. “Peerless and SPJV have a track record of success in this area, and we’re pleased the government is once again trusting us to work on these important national security programs.”
The W80 warhead, designed for use in cruise missiles, was first deployed in 1981. The W80-4 Life Extension Program is designed to extend the weapon’s service life and enhance its safety, security, and reliability for use in the current generation of cruise missiles and the new Long Range Stand Off weapon under development.
