MQ-1 Predator(click to view full) In November 2012, Battlespace Flight Services LLC in Arlington, VA received a maximum $950 million indefinite delivery/ indefinite quantity contract for worldwide organizational level UAV maintenance support. Battlespace is the incumbent provider for the USAF’s MQ-1 Predator and MQ-9 Reaper UAVs, and this program supports USAF Air Combat Command, the Air National Guard, and other major command and combatant command customers. Work will be performed in Newport News, VA until March 31/14, which seems to add up to a lot of maintenance if they hit their maximum over just 17 months. USAF Air Combat Command’s AMIC/PKCA in Newport News, VA manages the contract (FA4890-13-D-0001). Note that Battlespace is hiring, if you’ve been an MQ-1 or MQ-9 pilot or sensor operator.
