Corporation (Nasdaq: DRCO), a leading provider of innovative management
consulting, engineering, technology and information technology services and
solutions to federal and state governments, today announced that it received a
task order valued at $4.8 million from the U.S. Air Force Oklahoma City Air
Logistics Center at Tinker Air Force Base. The task order has an eighteen
month period of performance. DRC will provide developmental research
supporting the establishment of the Item Unique Identification (IUID) umbrella
program for Air Force depots.
This task order expands upon IUID research work previously performed by
DRC for Air Force depots and improves the Defense Department's asset tracking
of repaired, overhauled and manufactured components for accountability,
valuation and life cycle management. Based on previous research on specific
metallurgical impacts of IUID marking this new effort increases the number of
items that will be marked, bringing the Air Force closer to realizing its
objective of total asset visibility. Under the new task order DRC also will
provide comprehensive analysis of tagging and labeling methods, including
detailed studies of adhesives durability in operational environments.
"DRC is delighted to continue our support of the DoD's IUID initiatives,
as directed by the Under Secretary of Defense, Acquisition Technology and
Logistics," said Robert L. Smith, DRC's senior vice president and general
manager, Acquisition Management and Engineering Group. "Our efforts will
assist in the identification of state-of-the art asset tracking technology and
help improve accountability throughout the life cycle of all DoD assets."
