Army awards CSC joint venture $422M deal

The Army's White Sands Missile Range awarded a CSC-led joint venture a six-year, $422 million contract for mission support services.

The New Mexico Technology Group, a joint venture owned by Computer Sciences Corp., Lockheed Martin Corp., Northrop Grumman Corp., and TRAX International, will support both the missile range and the 46th Test Group High Speed Test Track at Holloman Air Force Base, N.M.

NewTec, as the joint venture is known, will oversee operation and maintenance of major test facilities, assist in developing instrumentation, and provide support for field and laboratory testing and other developmental engineering services for the missile range. The contract follows a previous award to the company in 1997 to handle mission support for White Sands.

The missile range, which is located in south-central New Mexico, provides the U.S. military and the Defense Department with high-quality services for experimentation, test, research, assessment, development and training.
