CSC Named To $450M FAA NextGen R&D IDIQ; Mike Gaffney Comments

Computer Sciences Corp. (NYSE: CSC) has won a prime position on a potential $450 million U.S. Transportation Department contract for research and development work.

The Fairfax, Va.-based information technology firm said it will compete for task orders to develop and test components for the Federal Aviation Administration’s NextGen program.

The company has helped the Volpe Center research and develop eco-friendly aviation technology for more than 10 years, said Mike Gaffney, president of the North American public sector civil group.

Work with the John A. Volpe National Transportation Systems Center will include research in fuel consumption, noise and emission reduction.

Applications will support the agency’s continuous lower energy, emissions, noise and commercial aviation alternative fuels programs.

The company recently announced that Paul Saleh will succeed Michael Mancuso as chief financial officer and vice president, effective May 23.
