DynCorp Receives $84.9M to Maintain VIP and Spy Planes
DynCorp International L.L.C. in Fort Worth, TX won an $84.9 million modification to a firm-fixed-price contract for maintaining the USA’s fleet of C-12 Huron and UC-35 Citation VIP transports, and RC-12 Guardrail ELINT/SIGINT spy planes. Work will be performed in Fort Worth, TX and is expected to be completed by Jan. 31, 2007. Bids solicited via the World Wide Web on March 8, 2000, and two bids were received by the Army Aviation and Missile Command, Redstone Arsenal, AL (DAAH23-00-C-0226).
The RC-12 Guardrail ELINT/SIGINT spy plane is one of the platforms that was supposed to be replaced by the joint Army-Navy Aerial Common Sensor (ACS) modified business jets. With the $8 billion program’s suspension, the RC-12’s ongoing maintenance and service becomes even more critical.
