A DRS Technologies business unit has won a $391 million contract to help manage aircraft cargo loaders for the U.S. Air Force at more than 80 locations worldwide.
DRS Sustainment Systems Inc. won the contract through a competitive acquisition, through which the Air Force received two offers, the Defense Department said Wednesday.
Performance-based logistics work for the 318 Tunner aircraft cargo loaders will include material management of parts and infrastructure, program engineering, overhaul, modifications and depot-level maintenance.
The Air Force Life Cycle Management Center awarded the hybrid firm-fixed-price, fixed-price-incentive-firm-target, cost-reimbursable no-fee, requirements-type “D” contract.
DRS will perform work through July 31, 2014 and the Air Force will obligate fiscal year 2014 working capital funds, centralized asset management, Air Force Reserve Command and Air National Guard funds as they are available.
