HII to Provide Professional Services for US Air Force Bombers Directorate

Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII) subsidiary Mission Technologies has received a $148-million recompete task order to support the US Air Force bomber fleet.

Services will be provided for the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center Bombers Directorate (AFLCMC/WB), a group overseeing the US Department of Defense’s bomber assets, including the B-1 Lancer supersonic heavy bombers, B-2 Spirit stealth bombers, and B-52 subsonic strategic bombers.

The directorate is also responsible for training, organizing, and equipping tasks associated with the B-21 Raider aircraft under development.

Maintaining ‘Warfighter Advantage’

HII’s contract will provide advisory and assistance to streamline military and civil service capabilities across the AFLCMC/WB.

The directorate will maintain tracking and management programs for research and development, assessments, production, modernization, life-cycle acquisition, and sustainment missions.

Work will take place over one year, including a four-year additional option.

Mission Technologies will perform most of the work at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio.

“Supporting the critical development and acquisition of Air Force bombers demands proven expertise across program management, engineering, innovative technology and more,” Mission Technologies Cyber, Electronic Warfare, and Space Business President Grant Hagen stated.

“Our team is intently focused on successful mission execution, and we look forward to continuing to support Air Force solutions that deliver the warfighter advantage.”

HII signed the initial AFLCMC/WB support task order in June 2017.
