DRS Technologies w-borderDRS Technologies has won a 10-year, $175 million contract to perform depot-level overhaul, parts management and program engineering services for the U.S. Air Force‘s Halvorsen 25K Aircraft Cargo Loaders.

Joseph Matteoni, vice president of the DRS Sustainment Systems business, said Wednesday that the company also provides logistics support for the Air Force’s Tunner program.

Work under the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract will be performed at a DRS Sustainment Systems manufacturing facility in West Plains, Missouri.
