Integrated Defense Technologies Subsidiary, Metric Systems, awarded $3.2M contract by TAMSCO.

Integrated Defense Technologies, Inc.'s (NYSE:IDE) subsidiary, Metric Systems, has been awarded a $3.2M Firm Fixed Price contract by Technical and Management Systems Corporation (TAMSCO), Calverton, Maryland, a subsidiary of Engineered Support Services, Inc. (NASDAQ:EASI) for the redesign of the P4BE Airborne Instrumentation System (AIS) pod transponder. TAMSCO is the prime contractor on this acquisition via the Flexible Acquisition and Sustainment Tool (FAST) contract vehicle at Hill AFB, Utah. The upgraded P4BE pod transponders will be installed and integrated into the Alaskan Air Combat Training System (ACTS). The program includes out-year option periods that, if exercised, will bring the contract value to over $10.4M.

Alaskan ACTS currently utilizes 120 of the P4BE AIS pods shared between Elmendorf AFB and Eielson AFB. The GPS-based pods are dual purpose because they operate a legacy Air Combat Maneuvering Instrumentation (ACMI) range, as well as record all mission data. Design modifications to the P4BE transponder will be compatible with other ACTS legacy airborne systems in the Air Force inventory including the P4B and P4G.
