(Annapolis, Maryland, September 24, 2007) -- ARINC Engineering Services, LLC, has received a follow-on contract to continue critical engineering support for the U.S. Navy Space and Naval Warfare (SPAWAR) Systems Center, Charleston (SSCC) Aviation Command and Control (AC2) Engineering Division.
The IDIQ cost-plus-fixed fee performance-based contract has a value of $22,474,000. It could reach a cumulative value of $169,639,971 if four option years and two performance based options are exercised. It is the third consecutive award for ARINC since it began supporting SPAWAR's AC2 Engineering Division in 1997. The Division is the contracting activity for a broad range of complex electronic systems to all branches of the Department of Defense, FAA, and other US government offices.
"This award ensures ARINC's important work for SPAWAR will continue with no impact to the warfighter when our current contract ends in October," stated Rick Jenderny, ARINC Senior Director, Command Control Systems & Services. "Not only is ARINC Engineering Services best qualified by experience and capabilities for this work, but a supplier change could have adversely affected design, development, delivery, and sustainment of vital SPAWAR projects including the deployment of transportable air traffic control (ATC) systems and services to CENTAF in Southwest Asia.(SWA)."
