General Atomics’ aeronautical systems business has received a $192.7M contract modification to provide logistics services for the U.S. Army‘s Gray Eagle unmanned aerial system.
Army Contracting Command will obligate $41.8M at the time of award from the service branch’s fiscal 2019 operations and maintenance funds, the Defense Department said Tuesday.
Work under the modification will take place in Poway, Calif., through April 23, 2019.
Gray Eagle UAS is based on the Predator unmanned aircraft and designed to support attack, reconnaissance, surveillance and target acquisition missions.
General Atomics developed the aircraft to operate at an altitude of up to 29K feet and carry more than 1K pounds of payload such as Hellfire missiles, a synthetic aperture radar, electro-optical/infrared sensors with laser designation and communications relay technology.
