Airborne surveillance systems provider TCOM has won a potential five-year, $978.9M contract to help the U.S. Army engineer and operate low-altitude aerostats that are intended for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions.

Army Contracting Command received three bids for the Persistent Surveillance Systems – Tethered contract via an online solicitation process and will determine funds and work locations upon issuance of each order, the Department of Defense said Monday.

PSS-T is designed to support multisensor data collection, 360-degree monitoring, weather detection, communications and force protection tasks during interagency, multinational and joint operations.

The Pentagon expects TCOM to finish contract work by June 19, 2024.
