The Space Development Agency has scheduled a "top secret sensitive compartmented information level" industry presentation to discuss the Tranche 2 Transport Layer-Gamma variant solicitation, according to an announcement today.

SDA noted the industry day will be held Feb. 7-8 in Chantilly, VA, and will focus on T2TL Gamma Other Transaction solicitation for payload development for space systems to provide fire control solutions.

“The latter portion of February 7 and the entire day of February 8 will be reserved for a series of 1-on-1 sessions for selected offerors who submitted inputs to the request for information or draft solicitation,” the agency said.

Last year, SDA issued a request for information for developing the warlock payload, an advanced warfighting payload capability for the T2TL-Gamma variant satellite constellation.

Additionally, a draft solicitation was issued last month, noting the agency is planning to procure 20 Gamma-variant satellites equipped with unique payloads designed to “close future kill chains” through the Proliferated Warfighter Space Architecture.

The initial launch capability of T2TL Gamma variant satellites is scheduled for September 2026, as per today’s notice.
