General Atomics to Provide Army UAS Technical Services Under $442M Contract

General Atomics has received a potential five-year, $441.6M contract to provide technical services to Gray Eagle unmanned aircraft systems the company has produced for the U.S. Army.

The service branch will determine funds and performance locations with each order under the cost-plus-fixed-fee contract that runs through Sept. 30, 2023, the Defense Department said Friday.

The Army Contracting Command solicited bids for the procurement effort via the internet and received one proposal.

A team of Army aviation personnel conducted a test and evaluation of the Gray Eagle UAS’ extended range variant earlier this month to obtain data about system performance.
