AECOM's URS arm takes $961M Air Force unmanned contract

AECOM’s URS Federal business has won a seven-year, $961 million contract to help the Air Force operate and maintain three types of unmanned aircraft.

The Air Force received three offers for the Remotely Piloted Aircraft Operations and Maintenance Support contract that seeks to sustain combat and training capabilities, the Defense Department said in its Friday contracts digest.

URS will be responsible for organizational-level maintenance support to Predator, Reaper and Global Hawk unmanned aerial vehicles. The business also will also support launch, recovery and sensor operations.

AECOM acquired URS in 2014.
