DCS Corp. awarded change proposal for KC-46A mission planning

DCS Corp. has been awarded an engineering change proposal for K-46A Pegasus mission planning under the Mobility Air Forces delivery order on the U.S. Air Force’s Mission Planning Enterprise Contract II, or MPEC II, the company announced Monday.

The order, valued at about $7.9 million, has a 26-month period of performance, DCS said in a statement.

MPEC II provides aircraft mission planning systems for the Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps.

Under the delivery order, DCS will provide mission planning software development and integration to create a joint mission planning system mission planning environment for the KC-46A aircraft.

The effort builds upon similar initiatives DCS developed for the C-5, KC-135, KC-10 and various blocks of the C-130J, C-17 and C-130.

Work will be performed in New Hampshire and Maryland.

The Boeing-built Pegasus is a multi-role tanker that can refuel all U.S., allied and coalition military aircraft compatible with international aerial refueling procedures.
