The U.S. Air Force has given support task order modifications to Dynamics Research Corporation to support Predator and Reaper unmanned aerial system programs.
The task orders, extensions under the NAVAIR Logistics, Maintenance and Supply Support contract vehicle, carry a combined value of $22.2 million.
DRS is a wholly owned subsidiary of Engility Holdings.
It's work under the task orders includes logistics management, project management, product and quality assurance, acquisition support and foreign military sales program management.
DRC/Engility will also support ground test, weapons integration, flight operations scheduling and logistics management for the Air Force's Medium Altitude Unmanned Aerial Systems Division at Wright-Patterson Air Force base in Ohio.
"We are very pleased to win these two awards," said Engility President and Chief Executive Officer Tony Smeraglinolo. "We appreciate the confidence the U.S. Air Force has shown in the outstanding work of the Engility men and women who have been supporting the MAUAS Division, and in particular, the critical missions of the MQ-1 Predator and MQ-9 Reaper."
Work under the task orders will be conducted at Wright-Patterson and also at sites in California, Engility said.
