Collins Aerospace was awarded an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) sustainment contract for the U.S. Air Force’s (USAF) U-2 program with a ceiling value of $493 million to support the USAF’s fleet of U-2 electro-optical/infrared sensors. The USAF also awarded Collins a $66.2 million Task Order for the first year of support, and fully-negotiated options for the second and third years of services and support valued at $114.6 million.
“Collins is proud to ensure the U-2 platform’s ongoing mission readiness with reliable and mature ISR assets that support USAF technology insertions, modernization and information dominance initiatives,” said Peggy Guirgis, acting vice president and general manager of ISR & Space Solutions for Collins Aerospace. “These awards continue our 60+ years of unparalleled end-to-end sustainment support for the U-2 and our team’s commitment to the warfighter.”
Collins Aerospace has a long history of delivering a high level of operational availability and performance for ISR missions, the company says. High altitude imaging is foundational to Collins Aerospace, and the Senior Year Electro Optical Reconnaissance System (SYERS)-2C sensor has continued to outperform other systems for decades, says Collins.
