Dynamics Research Corp. will continue to provide engineering and technology services to the Air Force, having won a pair of two-year delivery orders worth a combined $24.5 million.
These contracts allow DRC to continue its efforts supporting mission-critical services in conjunction with the Air Force’s Unmanned Aircraft System Predator/Reaper program, according to a company announcement released May 9.
Under a new delivery order valued at $5.6 million, DRC will support the Medium Altitude UAS Division with research and resolution of data rights for the entire Medium Altitude UAS program, the announcement states.
The second order, worth $18.9 million, calls for the government contractor to also provide program management, analysis and engineering, continuing work that dates to 2008.
The delivery orders were awarded under the Logistics, Maintenance and Supply Support contract, a five-year indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity award that provides total life-cycle systems management support for business process services, solutions for Defense Department logistics, maintenance and supply support functions, and associated technologies.
