“We are proud to serve the warfighter through this task order.”

The services are expected to improve the US’ capability to produce more missile systems. It will also help in reducing production issues and integrating weapons systems onto air, ground, and sea platforms.

The contract works will be carried out over the next five years at Redstone Arsenal in Alabama, US.
