Navy names IAP to manage air traffic in Southwest Asia

The U.S. Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center in Charleston, S.C., has awarded IAP Worldwide Services a performance-based contract to provide air traffic management and maintenance services for the U.S. Central Command Air Forces in Southwest Asia.

The indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity task order award has a maximum value of $29.8 million for six months with two three-month options, potentially increasing the value to $61 million for the full one-year term, the company said in a statement Sept. 6.

The contract is an extension of work being performed by IAP and is primarily to support Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan and Kyrgyzstan.

IAP will provide air traffic control and electronic equipment management for a variety of operations, including airfield management, operation and maintenance of air-to-ground communications, surveillance and precision radar, voice communications, and aviation weather systems.

Although the work is expected to be performed in Southwest Asia, task order performance locations may vary with Defense Department mission requirements, IAP said. This phase of the work is expected to be completed in March 2007.

IAP provides a broad range of services to DOD and other agencies. The company, based in Cape Canaveral, Fla., specializes in three lines of business: global operations and logistics, facilities management, and professional and technical services.

Through its subsidiary Readiness Management Support in Panama City, Fla., IAP is developing Afghanistan’s air traffic control system to support Operation Enduring Freedom. As the Air Force's Contract Augmentation Program prime contractor, IAP installed the Kabul Air Control Center, which provides modernized flight services within the Kabul Flight Information Region.
