Boeing, Textron units win potential $475M Special Operations unmanned ISR contract

Boeing's Insitu and Textron's AAI Corp. subsidiaries have won positions on a potential six-year, $475 million contract for unmanned systems and related intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance services to Special Operations Command.

The Mid-Endurance Unmanned Aircraft Systems III contract covers a 54-month base period, followed by four 12-month ordering periods and then an added six-month ordering period.

MEUAS III calls on awardees to provide UAS for launch, control and recovery missions to perform ISR functions and inject full-motion video into host systems, according to Deltek. Work under MEUAS III also includes site surveys to assess the adequacy of infrastructure to support ISR operations.

Insitu and AAI will compete for task orders to carry out the ISR services at multiple locations worldwide through June 2022.

AAI is also one of three companies participating in a five-year, $900 million contract awarded in April for technical services and field support to the Army for unmanned systems.
