(NASDAQ:TTEK) announced today that it was awarded the rebid to its largest Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) contract, the Global Positioning System Technical Assistance Contract 2 (GPS TAC2). This follow-on contract is worth approximately $60 million over two base years and one option year.
Tetra Tech's work helps the FAA capitalize on GPS technology advancements to allow for greater civilian air travel density and to provide greater worldwide accuracy, availability, and integrity of navigation information. Tetra Tech will provide a full range of technical engineering and business support services to help manage the FAA's current and future satellite navigation system needs.
