Technology, engineering and management solutions provider DCS Corp. has been awarded a 5-year, $48 million prime task order to support the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center’s Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance and Special Operations Forces Directorate’s Global Hawk Division under the Air Force’s EPASS program.
DCS is to provide a broad range of acquisition, engineering, scientific, research, finance and administrative support for USAF aircraft research, development, production, life cycle acquisition, and sustainment activities as well as foreign military sales support.
“DCS is excited for the opportunity to provide support to the Air Force’s remotely piloted Global Hawk fleet of aircraft,” said DCS President and Chief Operating Officer Randy Washington. “Our history of providing ISR expertise positions us well to support the Global Hawk mission, delivering the technical excellence and quality for which DCS is known.”
Global Hawk is a high-altitude, long-endurance, remotely piloted aircraft with an integrated sensor suite that provides global all weather, day or night ISR capability.
Full contract performance began in November at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, and Robins Air Force Base, Georgia.
Fully staffed, this effort is expected to comprise 44 personnel from DCS and subcontractors Abacus, Imagintel, MAG Aerospace, Sumaria and WBB.
