With the IDIQ contracts, the government will place individual task orders against the MAC for land-based and sea-based requirements. AAI and Insitu are eligible to compete for both sea- and land-based task orders. CSC may compete for land-based task orders.
Tasks performed under this contract will require the contractors to provide 24/7 ISR services, including all planning, coordination, certification, installation, pre-deployment, deployment, logistics, maintenance, flying and post-deployment efforts.
The ISR services contract is in direct support of worldwide combat missions including round-the-clock imagery and other sensor capability in support of both sea- and land-based missions.
