DCS Corporation has been awarded a 5-year, $93.4 million prime task order to support the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC) Intelligence Surveillance Reconnaissance & Special Operations Forces Directorate’s Helicopter Program Office (HPO) under the Air Force’s EPASS program. DCS will provide a broad range of acquisition, engineering, scientific, research, and administrative support for USAF aircraft research, development, production, life cycle acquisition, and sustainment.
Full performance will commence December 2019 from a new DCS facility near Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio and will grow to include work at Duke Field (Eglin AFB Auxiliary Field #3) in Florida. Fully staffed, this effort is expected to comprise 95 personnel from DCS and subcontractors Naval Systems, Inc.; Sumaria, Inc.; and PE Systems.
“This is an exciting new opportunity for DCS to grow our Wright-Patterson AFB footprint and expand our support of DoD helicopters through these ACAT 1 programs,” Executive Vice President Larry Egbert stated. “Our rotary wing capabilities and background are well aligned to HPO mission requirements and we look forward to supporting the AFLCMC/WIH command and mission.”
