Engility subsidiary TASC has secured a contract to deliver systems engineering and integration (SE&I) for the US Air Force Global Positioning Systems (GPS) directorate.
The GPS directorate is the agency responsible for making sure the space-based satellite navigation system is operational.
Valued at $67m, the two-year GPS SE&I contract also has the option to extend TASC’s support to 6.5 years with a value of more than $200m.
Engility president and CEO Tony Smeraglinolo said: "GPS provides a worldwide navigational component that is a key piece to our nation’s critical infrastructure and we are honoured to support its mission.
"This contract adds to our solid base for space and launch work on the west coast and will enable us to continue developing strong systems engineers and analysts for future capabilities."
Under this contract, TASC will be responsible for the supply of updated versions of the technical baseline for the GPS enterprise that comprises the system’s user and operational requirements.
Moreover, it covers programme and product information, and other related configuration as well as data specifications.
TASC will also be assigned to analyse and recommend alternatives to enterprise-level changes under consideration by the government as well as offer a range of other systems engineering support.
Work under this contract will be carried out at Los Angeles Air Force Base under cost-plus-fixed-fee and firm-fixed-price components.
