MTC Technologies Inc., Dayton, Ohio, won a task order under the Flexible Acquisition and Sustainment Tool contract to develop an Identification Friend or Foe system for Air National Guard F-16 aircraft, the company announced this week. The potential value of the task order, which will run for six years, could be up to $175 million.
MTC's wholly owned subsidiary Modern Technologies Corp. won the work. BAE Systems Plc, Farnborough, U.K., will support the company.
The Ogden Air Logistics Center made the award. Initial funding of $5.1 million to begin engineering and low-rate production work has been provided. Ultimately, 460 systems may be replaced. The work will be performed at the F-16 Management Directorate's Core Avionics Branch.
Employing approximately 1,100 people in 20 locations, MTC Technologies focuses on providing engineering, technical and management services to the federal government. The company was founded in 1984.
