DCS announced today that the company was awarded an Engineering Change Proposal (ECP) for KC-46A Mission Planning under the Mobility Air Forces (MAF) Delivery Order on the U.S. Air Force’s Mission Planning Enterprise Contract (MPEC) II. MPEC II provides aircraft mission planning systems for the United States Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps. Work on the MAF KC-46A ECP will occur over a twenty six-month period and is valued at approximately $7.9 million.
Under this delivery order, DCS will provide mission planning software development and integration to create a Joint Mission Planning System (JMPS) mission planning environment (MPE) for the KC-46A aircraft. The KC-46A effort builds upon other DCS-developed JMPS MPEs for the C-5, KC-135, KC-10 CNS/ATM, C-130J Block 6, C-130J Block 8.1, C-17 Blocks 15-20, and C-130 SCNS Block Cycles 7 and 8 platforms as well as the Global Flight Planning (GFP) Tool for user access to the Advanced Computer Flight Plan (ACFP) system. Work awarded under the delivery order will be performed at DCS offices in Nashua, NH and Lexington Park, MD by the Mission Planning Department, whose software engineering processes are appraised at the CMMI Maturity Level 3.
