Engility has secured a $49.5M contract to help the U.S. Air Force maintain software for a tactical data exchange system used on airborne platforms.
The Defense Department said Wednesday the company will provide software sustainment support for the Joint Range Extension/Joint Range Extension Tactical Equipment Package under the requirements-type, cost-reimbursable contract.
The Air Force will obligate $3.2M in fiscal 2018 operations and maintenance funds on the initial order.
Work will occur through May 27, 2023, in San Diego as well as at Shaw Air Force Base in South Carolina and Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar.
Joint and coalition forces use the JRE gateway to exchange information and obtain situational awareness.
