SRA International has won a potential five-year, $29 million contract to help the U.S. Air Force build an information technology system for tracking aircraft parts, tools and support equipment.

The Fairfax, Va.-based company will develop and integrate products aimed at automatically capturing, aggregating and transferring data on aircraft through machine-readable devices, SRA said Friday.

SRA’s Automated Identification Technology and Maintenance Operation Control Visualizer also intends to provide asset status and location information to depot maintenance mission stakeholders, the company says.

George Batsakis, senior vice president of the defense group, said the company is aiming to help the military gain visibility of aircraft and other asset locations.

SRA will develop and deploy information technology systems at 55 facilities at four locations.
