Tempus Applied Solutions (TAS) announced today that the Company was a team member to one of the successful offerors selected as a prime contractor on a United States Navy indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract to provide airborne and land-based training support to various U.S. Navy combat units. The potential value of the contract is approximately $45 million over five years.

Most of these aircraft have been specially modified by TAS for DoD-related missions such as threat simulation, surveillance, communications relay and various test and development programs. TAS maintains a highly qualified and skilled in-house engineering team that supports aircraft modifications, certification, maintenance and flight testing.
