Engility Holdings Inc. has won a $26.8 million task order from the John A. Volpe National Transportation System Center to support a facilities planning project related to the Federal Aviation Administration’s NextGen program.
The company is tasked with providing economists, systems engineers and business analysts support in helping the Volpe Center and its FAA sponsor with program management and economic analysis.
The contract has a term of 48 months from the date of award, July 25, 2012.
“We are honored to receive this latest task order and appreciate the opportunity to support the Volpe Center and its sponsor, the FAA, on this aspect of the NextGen mission,” said Tony Smeraglinolo, President and CEO of Engility.
“Engility, through its legacy companies, has been a partner with the Volpe Center for more than 20 years,” he added.
The NextGen program is working to improve the National Airspace System by transforming the current ground-based air traffic control system into an advanced satellite-based air traffic management system.
Its implementation is expected to reduce flight delays, carbon emissions, fuel consumption and noise.
