Tetra Tech Inc. won a three-year, $60 million contract renewal from the Federal Aviation Administration to provide global positioning system technology that allows for denser civilian air travel and enhances the integrity of navigation information.
Under the new contract, Tetra Tech of Pasadena, Calif., will provide technical engineering and business support services to help manage the FAA's current and future satellite navigation system needs. The Global Positioning System Technical Assistance Contract 2 has a two-year base period and one option year.
Tetra Tech has supported the FAA as the prime contractor for a predecessor to the GPS TAC2 contract for the past seven years. Under the previous contract, the company provided acquisition support services for a satellite navigation system used for civilian aviation.
Tetra Tech, which has more than 8,600 employees and annual sales of $1.2 billion, ranks No. 65
on Washington Technology's 2005 Top 100
list of federal prime contractors.
