Serco has secured one of three awards on a new multiple award contract (MAC) that supports SPAWAR Systems Center (SSC) Atlantic with air traffic control (ATC) engineering and technical support services for the US Navy and Marine Corps ATC systems.

The MAC has a ceiling value of $199m and covers a one-year base period and four one-year options periods.

Under the deal, the company will be responsible for delivering specialised ATC technical and integration support, configuration data management, and systems maintenance for a broad range of complex ATC.

The scope of delivery also includes meteorology and oceanography (METOC) and aviation command, control, communications, computers, combat, intelligence surveillance, and reconnaissance (C5ISR) systems.

"Serco takes pride in the work and solutions we deliver to our customers."

Serco C4ISR Business unit vice-president Kent Brown said: "Serco takes pride in the work and solutions we deliver to our customers and we are proud to continue our support of SSC Atlantic Air Traffic Control operations.

"We are honoured to have been awarded this contract and look forward to delivering shore-based Air Traffic Control systems for the US Navy and US Marine Corps."

As part of this development, Serco will now bid on task orders to offer ATC engineering and technical support services to support SPAWAR Systems Center Atlantic.

The company will carry out work under this contract at its facility in Charleston, South Carolina, as well as navy and Marine Corps shore facilities worldwide, including Antarctica and Southwest Asia.

Recently, Serco received a contract to support the US Marine Corps Reserve (MCR) psychological health outreach programme (PHOP).
