Boeing has been awarded a contract with a potential value of $22.2 million by the U. S. Air Force to continue providing E-3 AWACS mission crew training at Tinker Air Force Base, Okla. The contract is with the U. S. Air Logistics Center in Oklahoma City.
The new five-year contract -- covering one year and with four one-year options -- calls for Boeing to provide contract mission simulator support and training development services for E-3 AWACS mission crews at Tinker air base.
The contract calls for Boeing to develop courses and supporting courseware, develop computer-based training materials, provide academic and simulator instructors, operate the mission simulators and build training scenarios for the E-3 AWACS mission crews.
"This announcement is a vote of confidence in the quality of our work and work force," said Dennis Campbell, Boeing Aerospace Operations (BAO) E-3 Mission Crew Training program manager at Tinker. "We are very proud of our past performance on this contract, and we are excited about a continuation on this important program."
BAO, with headquarters in Cocoa Beach, Fla., is a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Boeing Company. The subsidiary member work force supports various NASA programs as well as various Department of Defense programs requiring technical support, aircraft training and maintenance, and logistics support.
