DRS said the option is potentially worth $48.4 million. DRS said it will manage government-owned inventory and provide material support for E-6B aircraft.
The E-6 is an airborne command post and communications relay based on Boeing‘s 707 jet. DRS said it will also provide residual spares for other 707-deriviative programs, including the C-18 and VC-137.
DRS said work will be performed mainly at Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma.
