Engility wins $66 million contract to provide technical, management, and analysis services to Volpe Center
Engility Holdings, Inc. based in Chantilly, VA, announced on December 10 that it has been awarded a $66 million contract to provide technical, management, and analysis support to the John A. Volpe Transportation Systems Center. Specifically, Engility will support the ongoing development, evaluation, and management of the Federal Aviation Administration’s Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast (ADS-B) program. The cost plus fixed fee award is valued at $66 million over three years.
ADS-B will provide the linchpin technology for the FAA’s Next-Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen). The system is designed to make air travel more efficient, predictable, and environmentally friendly by moving air traffic control from ground-based radars to smarter, satellite-based, and digital technologies.
“ADS-B is one of the FAA’s most critical programs and has an extraordinarily successful track record, having met all of its key program milestones since its inception in 2006,” said Engility President and CEO Tony Smeraglinolo. “The Volpe Center’s selection of Engility to continue to provide technical and program support is a testament of our capabilities and the quality of support we have provided to the program over the last 8 years.”
