PAE awarded USAF aerial target support contract
PAE Aviation and Technical Services has been awarded a $19.2 million contract modification to support the US Air Force’s aerial targets programme.
This provides for the exercise of an option for an additional year of service under the multi-year contract, which directly supports live-fire weapons system testing and enables the 53rd Weapons Evaluation Group to perform developmental and operational weapons testing for all air-to-air missiles for the F-15, F-16, F-22, and F-35 fighters.
Work will be performed at Tyndall AFB in Florida and Holloman AFB in New Mexico, and is expected to be completed by 30 September 2020.
FY20 operations and maintenance funds are being used but no allocation was made at the time of award.
The Air Combat Command’s Acquisition Management and Integration Center at Langley AFB in Virginia is the contracting activity for the award.
