A business unit of General Atomics has received a one-year, $328.8 million contract to support the U.S. Air Force fleet of MQ‐1 Predator and MQ‐9 Reaper drones.

The Defense Department said Friday that General Atomics Aeronautical Systems Inc. will help the service branch operate flights, maintain depot fields, supply technical manual and manage inventory control points for both remotely piloted aircraft platforms.

GA-ASI will also provide depot repair, technical manual, field service representative, software maintenance and core and configuration management support services under the sole-source contract, DoD added.

USAF obligated $32.3 million at the time of award from the service branch’s fiscal 2018 operations and maintenance funds.

The Pentagon expects GA-ASI to finish contract work by Dec. 31, 2018.
