Engility Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: EGL), today announced that TASC, an Engility company has been awarded a $67 million contract to provide systems engineering and integration (SE&I) for the U.S. Air Force Global Positioning Systems (GPS) Directorate, the agency responsible for ensuring the space-based satellite navigation system is operational.
The contract, known as the GPS SE&I, has a two-year base with options to extend TASC's support to 6.5 years with a value of more than $200 million. The award represents new work and was made by the USAF Space and Missile Systems Center.
GPS is developed and deployed by the U. S. Air Force, the Federal government's steward of the system.

TASC will also provide approvable products that are required for Department of Defense milestone approvals, and support processes that ensure the highest quality and functionality for an accurate and reliable GPS. In addition, TASC will analyze and recommend alternatives to enterprise-level changes under consideration by the government as well as provide a range of other systems engineering support.
"GPS provides a worldwide navigational component that is a key piece to our nation's critical infrastructure and we are honored to support its mission," said Engility President and CEO Tony Smeraglinolo. "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."
