As a past and present technical service provider on the Professional Acquisition Support Services (PASS and PASS II), Engineering and Technology Acquisition Support Services II (ETASS II) and Specialized Cost Services (SCS IV) contracts, Quantech provides support to the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC) Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS)/HBS Division. The HBS program office is responsible for the acquisition and fielding of $6.5B of US and International AWACS and Airborne Early Warning and Control Systems (AEW&C), including sixteen active Foreign Military Sales (FMS) cases in excess of $3.5B with seven nations (Australia, France, Japan, Korea, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, United Kingdom) and NATO. The AWACS/AEW&C weapon systems provide integrated command and control battle management (C2BM), surveillance, target detection and target tracking. These airborne capabilities provide situational awareness of friendly, neutral and hostile activity, command and control of an area of responsibility, battle management of theater forces, all-altitude and all-weather surveillance of the battle space, and early warning of enemy actions during joint, allied, and coalition operations.
Quantech provides Engineering support (Systems, Test, Information Assurance (IA), Logistics, Configuration/Date Management (CM/DM)), Acquisition support (Program/Project Management, Scheduling, Financial, Administrative, Human Resources (HR)), and Specialized Cost support (Cost Estimating, Subject Matter Expert (SME)) to a portfolio of US/FMS AWACS and AEW&C modernization programs. Programs include upgrades to operational and network capability (Block 40/45, IPEC), cockpit modernization (DRAGON), Identification of Friend/Foe improvements (NGIFF) and fleet sustainment efforts.
