Whitesell-Green has been awarded an $8.5 million contract by the U.S. Navy to build a mission control facility at a military airport in Florida for the Northrop Grumman-built MQ-4C Triton unmanned aircraft system.
The U.S. Navy said Wednesday the company will construct and connect a 12,200-square-foot building to an existing Triton mission control facility located at Naval Air Station Jacksonville.
“The new building will include primary and redundant mission control system modules, a server room, mission planning and brief/debrief rooms and a secure equipment vault,” said Capt. Sean P. Haley, commanding officer of NAS Jacksonville.
Construction is scheduled to be completed in July 2017.
