DRS Technologies receives position on USAF Design and Engineering Support Program III

PARSIPPANY, N.J., 14 March, 2012. DRS Technologies, Inc. announced that the U.S. Air Force has selected DRS C3 & Aviation Company as one of its awardees for the Design & Engineering Support Program III (DESP III).

DRS is among 26 other prime contractors that were selected for this indefinite delivery / indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract vehicle which expires in January 2019. The DESP III program has a ceiling value of $1.9 billion, which funds all contractors on this program based on the services provided.

Managed by the Air Logistics Center at Hill AFB, Ogden, Utah, DESP III provides engineering services and high-level technical services for weapons systems, components and support equipment for the US Air Force and other Department of Defense agencies.

The DESP III program focuses on improving system life cycle cost, operational life, performance and sustainment of Air Force systems and subsystems. The contract includes engineering services in the areas of new design, technical documentation, diminishing material & manufacturing sources, environmental improvement issues, reliability, productivity, efficiency, and cost saving.

The DESP III contract was specifically established for use within the Air Force Materiel Command (AFMC), but can also be used by other Air Force Commands as well as U.S. Department of Defense and other government entities. Government entities which utilize this dynamic contract vehicle must have similar systems and/or needs and must receive sponsorship from an Air Logistics Center.
