PAE Gets $72M Navy Test Range Support Contract Option

PAE will continue to help the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division engineer, operate and maintain the U.S. Navy’s Atlantic test range under a $72M contract modification.

The modification exercises an option in a previously awarded cost-plus-fixed-fee contract and will include range sustainability, testing and data reduction services to NAWCAD’s marine operations division, the Department of Defense said Monday.

The Navy will obligate $35M in fiscal 2019 working capital, major range and test facility base funds at the time of award.

Work will take place in Patuxent River, Md., through December of next year.

The company initially received a $69.8M contract in August 2014 to provide range engineering and operations and maintenance services to the military service.
