The Defense Department's Joint Strike Fighter program office has awarded a $10.5 million contract to Dynamics Research Corp. for a range of acquisition support services.
The contract has one base year and four one-year options, and was competitively awarded through the General Services Administration's FEDSIM contract.
Under the terms of the contract, DRC of Andover, Mass., will support evaluation and development of acquisition and sustainment strategies, analytical support for government validation and verification of the autonomic logistics system, technical support for JSF models enhancement, business process improvement initiatives, and recommendations for performance-based program metrics that address operational and support requirements.
The JSF program is developing next-generation strike aircraft weapon systems for the Navy, Air Force, Marines and U.S. allies. Lockheed Martin Corp. of Bethesda, Md., was awarded the contract in October 2001 to develop the F-35 JSF.
