Work under the firm-fixed-price contract will occur in Ridley Park, Penn. through Sept. 30, 2017 and the U.S. Army Contracting Command’s office at Redstone Arsenal, Ala. is the contracting activity.
The company won a $676 million modification from the Army in February to provide that branch 32 Chinooks, nearly a month after the Pentagon announced a set of Chinook contracts worth nearly $588 million.
One contract worth an estimated $370 million covers a bridge requirement to support the foreign military sales program and another nearly $218 million modified an existing procurement.
Australia and the United Arab Emirates are purchasing the helicopters through a $370 million sale.
