Boeing Subsidiary to Update Air Force Airlift Planning System

Boeing’s (NYSE: BA) wholly owned subsidiary Tapestry Solutions has been selected as part of an industry team to support and upgrade the U.S. Air Force Air Mobility Command’s consolidated air mobility planning system. A subcontractor to SAIC, Tapestry was awarded a six-year contract valued at up to $15 million.

Tapestry’s engineering support team will insert new software technology into the planning system, an airlift and air-refueling mission planning and scheduling system used since 1990 across the Defense Department for peacetime, crisis and contingency and wartime operations. Tapestry will also lead operations and training for the updated web-services-based system.

“The CAMPS win is a tribute to the team that developed a cost-saving, low-risk solution for the government, ” said Tony Rigazzi, Tapestry’s senior director of strategic programs. “As defense budgets shrink, new ways of satisfying warfighter requirements with innovative solutions will win the day in today’s fiercely competitive environment.”
