MCR LLC will furnish mission support services for NATO’s Air Command and Control Agency under a contract potentially worth $14 million over eight years.
Under the contract, MCR will provide technical and engineering support, company officials said today. Specific services include program and risk management, cost analysis, configuration control, and administrative and operational support.
MCR will perform the bulk of the support onsite at the agency’s offices in Brussels, Belgium. The company has worked with the organization for the past 10 years.
NATO’s Air Command and Control Agency is responsible for central planning, system engineering, implementation and configuration management for an ongoing initiative to consolidate existing air defense systems in Europe under the organization’s control into a single system. Such a system would give the organization tighter control over planning and executing aircraft missions and operations.
MCR, of McLean, Va., is a provider of integrated program management services to U.S and allied governments.
