ITT Wins US Air Force Counter-Drug Surveillance Contract


White Plains, N.Y- ITT Corporation (NYSE:ITT) today announced that it has been awarded the Forward Operating Location Base Operating Support (FOL-BOS) contract by the Headquarters Air Combat Command Acquisition Management and Integration Center, Langley AFB, Va. The phase-in and base period award is for $7.9 million, and with all options exercised, the contract has a potential value of $194 million. Work will be performed by ITT’s Systems Division.

The FOL-BOS contract includes performing operations that support the aerial counter-drug surveillance mission of the US Southern Command.

Phase-in began April 1, and with options, the contract will extend to 2014.

“This vital mission is a key component of protecting our hemisphere from the threat of illegal drugs,” said Pete McKinney, President of ITT Systems Division. “ITT is proud to continue its 40-year legacy of partnership with Air Combat Command and its predecessor, Tactical Air Command—both in this theater and worldwide.”
