This contract consists of EMs (tactical, telemetered and inert operational); FCSs; LMs; mission support equipment, training equipment and courses; engineering services; and travel and other direct costs.  This contract includes options which, if exercised, would bring the cumulative value of this contract to $847.6 million.  Work is expected to be completed by May 2020.
