Recurring work covers ground maintenance, system operations, depot activation and supply chain management services to fighter aircraft components for the Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, non-Department of Defense customers and foreign military sales participants, the Pentagon said Tuesday.
The company will also train pilots and maintenance personnel under the firm-fixed-price and cost-plus-fixed-fee contract.
