General Atomics Books $305M Air Force Reaper UAV Support Contract

General Atomics will help the U.S. Air Force maintain the service branch's MQ-9 Reaper unmanned aerial vehicles under a two-year, $305.2M contract.

The sole-source, cost-plus-fixed-fee contractor logistics contract includes depot repair and maintenance of the multimission remotely piloted aircraft, sustaining engineering, program and configuration management and warehouse support services, the Department of Defense said Friday.

DoD added the company will maintain technical data and software.

The service branch will obligate $65.4M at the time of award from its fiscal 2021 operation and maintenance funds.

According to the Air Force, the MQ-9 RPA is designed primarily to disable or destroy time-sensitive targets and has a secondary function as an intelligence-gathering platform.
