Boeing's Tapestry selected for CAMPS
Boeing wholly owned subsidiary Tapestry Solutions has been selected as part of an industry team to upgrade and support the US Air Force Air Mobility Command's Consolidated Air Mobility Planning System (CAMPS), according to a press release issued by the company today. As a subcontractor to SAIC, Tapestry was awarded a six-year contract valued at up to $15 million.
CAMPS is an airlift and air-refuelling mission planning and scheduling system used since 1990 across the Department of Defense for peacetime, crisis, contingency and wartime operations. Under the contract Tapestry's engineering support team will insert new software technology into CAMPS, as well as leading operations and training for the updated web-services-based system.
According to Boeing, Tapestry will be able to apply its suite of planning, optimization and disruption-management software applications to enhance mission readiness. Headquartered in San Diego, Tapestry forms the core of the Logistics Command and Control subdivision of the Defense & Government Services division of Boeing Defense, Space & Security.
Tony Rigazzi, senior director of Strategic Programs for Tapestry commented on the award, saying: ‘the CAMPS win is a tribute to the team that developed a cost-saving, low-risk solution for the government. As defence budgets shrink, new ways of satisfying warfighter requirements with innovative solutions will win the day in today's fiercely competitive environment.’
