Textron Systems Subsidiary Lands $142M in Army Logistics, Program Mgmt Contracts

RQ-7B Shadow droneAAI, a subsidiary of Textron (NYSE: TXT) Systems, has been awarded two potential one-year contracts worth $142.5 million combined to provide performance-based logistics and program management support for the U.S. Army’s Shadow drones.

The first award is an indefinite-quantity/indefinite-delivery contract worth $110 million and the second firm-fixed-price contract is worth $32.5 million, the Defense Department said Friday.

The Shadow 200 UAV is designed for surveillance, reconnaissance, assessment and targeting operations.

The contractor is scheduled to complete work on both contracts on Oct. 29, 2016, according to DoD.

The Army Contracting Command will obligate $1, 566, 523 from fiscal 2016 operations and maintenance funds for the firm-fixed-price contract and will determine funds and work location upon award of each task order under the IDIQ contract.
