Huntington Ingalls Industries is Supporting Air Force ISR in Europe and Africa
Huntington Ingalls Industries secured a General Services Administration One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services, or OASIS, task order to provide Persistent Multi-Role Operations support to the U.S. Air Force-Europe (USAFE) by the Federal Systems Integration and Management Center. The task order will provide contractor owned-contractor operated manned and unmanned airborne intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) in support of Air Force requirements in the European and African theaters of operation. The task order has a base period of one year with four option years and a potential value of $954 million.
“We are looking forward to continuing to advance the implementation of innovative ISR solutions for USAFE and across the DOD,” Garry Schwartz, president of Huntington's Technical Solutions, Mission Driven Innovative Solutions group.
The Air Force directs global integrated ISR operations from forward-deployed locations worldwide, including locations throughout the six geographic combatant commands. Air Force ISR operations are conducted in multiple domains and across all phases of operations and environments. The timely integration and delivery of ISR information provides joint, defense, national, and coalition partners with actionable intelligence for the commander and warfighter. Under the tasking, the company help provide persistent, multi-role and cross-domain ISR capabilities that increase indications and warnings, enhance the U.S. security defense posture, enable the freedom of movement, increase partnership capacity and interoperability, and foster global security and stability throughout the European and African areas of responsibility.
