Engility wins $49.5M JRE-TEP contract
Engility Holdings, Inc. of Chantilly, VA announced on October 11 that it won a contract with a ceiling value of $49.5 million with the U.S. Air Force Lifecycle Management Center to provide engineering support and sustainment services for the JRE-TEP system.
“Engility’s JRE communications systems currently support more than 1,600 military platforms in the air, on land and at sea,” said Scott Whatmough, Engility’s senior vice president for Engility’s Defense and Security Group. “Continuing to provide combat-proven data link gateways to improve situational awareness for the U.S. Air Force around the world will help them successfully complete their missions.”
Engility will also provide maintenance, field support, cybersecurity, block cycle upgrades and testing, and other technical services to the JTEP program. The JRE software provides near-real time beyond line-of-sight Link 16 connectivity and routing throughout a theater of operations, between theaters, and from theaters to rear-area command and control centers. The technology also provides the ability to link two dissimilar data link networks, such as Link 16 and Situational Awareness Data Link systems.
