ATSP3 - Advanced Technology Support Program III

The Advanced Technology Support Program III (ATSP3) is an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract that provides streamlined access to the full range of Raytheon engineering solutions. ATSP3 is available to any U.S. Government agency, state government, and approved foreign government. Because the basic contract is precompeted, the Government customer can select Raytheon to bid on and receive an ATSP delivery order contract, usually without having to evaluate bids from other companies.

The broad scope includes all phases of engineering development, including: studies, and analysis, design, and development, prototyping, integration and testing, limited production, and logistic support. ATSP3 delivery orders are issued by the Defense Microelectronics Activity (DMEA) to develop advanced technology hardware and software solutions to improve system performance, solve sustainability and obsolescence issues, and address the Government's future technology needs.

Who Can Use It

All U.S. DoD and Federal Government agencies, state governments, and approved foreign governments can use ATSP3.

What Is The Scope

A broad scope of engineering development work can be accomplished on ATSP3.

ATSP3 work can include:
  • Electronic hardware development
  • Software development
  • Systems of systems integration

ATSP3 programs can include all engineering phases:

  • Analysis and Studies
  • Design
  • Development
  • System engineering
  • Fabrication
  • Packaging and assembly
  • Limited production and limited logistic support of ATSP3-developed items
  • Prototyping
  • Integration
  • Installation
  • Site activation
  • Testing
  • Training

On ATSP3 programs, Raytheon can develop engineering solutions to equipment:

  • Capability needs or deficiencies
  • Performance needs or deficiencies
  • Reliability, maintainability, supportability or sustainability
  • Obsolescence, availability, or manufacturability,

Solutions can be developed for items that range in complexity from integrated circuits through discrete electronics, circuit boards, modules, and assemblies; to subsystems, systems, and systems of systems.

How Does It Work

You and Your Agency

Step 1. Identify Requirement. Request assistance from the Raytheon ATSP Office and/or DMEA, Sacramento, CA.

Step 2. Government Coordination. Coordinate with DMEA to define the requirement and clarify any scope issues. DMEA coordinates with you and your agency to determine that your requirement is within the scope of the ATSP3 contract.

Step 3. Confirm Use of ATSP3. Mutually agree with DMEA to use ATSP3.

Step 4 Develop Documents. Develop the necessary strategy and documents with DMEA assistance. These include the Contractual Engineering Task (CET) (functionally equivalent to a SOW) and Supplemental Information Form (SIF).

Step 5. Procurement Package. Provide funding via MIPR or other appropriate document. DMEA prepares and issues the procurement package.

Step 6. Evaluate Proposal, Negotiate and Award Contract. Review the proposal and provide a technical evaluation to DMEA. DMEA reviews the proposal and coordinates DMEA's and your technical evaluation inputs. DMEA negotiates and issues the Delivery Order contract.

You and your agency manage the task on a daily basis. DMEA provides technical oversight during task performance and, if you desire, can provide daily task management.
