PLEXSYS wins $8.3M contract to support AWACS MTC program

PLEXSYS Interface Products has won an $8.3 million contract to provide the Air Force with commercial training simulation services on contractor-owned equipment for the AWACS MTC follow-on program.

Under the contract, PLEXSYS will deliver continued AWACS MTC Block 30/35 commercial training simulation services on contractor-owned equipment until the trainers are replaced by Block 40/45 Mission Crew Training Systems.  

Block 30/35 simulation training services consist of availability of effective high-fidelity AWACS E-3 Block 30/35 training capability; concurrency with ramp aircraft; and compliance with Distributed Mission Operations Standards, the Defense Department said in a release.

Work will be performed at Tinker Air Force Base, Okla., Elmendorf Air Force Base, Alaska, and Kadena Air Base, Japan, and is expected to be completed by Dec. 31, 2014. 

Funding in the amount of $2,072,264.25 is obligated at the time of award.
