ECS announced on Thursday that the company has secured a five-year, $53 million recompete contract in support of the U.S. Transportation Command’s Global Air Transportation Execution System.
“It’s a privilege to continue to support GATES, providing the cargo and passenger management capabilities necessary for USTRANSCOM to project and sustain the Joint Force,” said John Heneghan, president of ECS and a 2022 Wash100 Award winner. “We enable continuous integration and delivery of applications so GATES can iterate at the speed technology evolves.”
ECS will provide agile software development to sustain and enhance GATES operations for a worldwide user base. In addition, ECS will migrate additional capabilities to the cloud and improve the Agile software development processes.
“With our demonstrated expertise in Agile software development, GATES has seen quicker iterations and faster technological development, fewer bugs in the field, and the modernization of legacy systems,” said Luis Colon-Castro, vice president of mission systems at ECS.
GATES manages all air and sea cargo and passenger movements for Department of Defense missions, enabling operators at air and sea ports to manage the movement of cargo to its ultimate destination.
GATES also provides passenger processing capabilities, including required checks with the Department of Homeland Security, and mission-specific In-Transit Visibility data for USTRANSCOM and other combatant commands.
