Engility has received a contract from the US Army to continue providing engineering support to its Tactical Exploitation of National Capabilities (TENCAP) programme.

Valued at $24m, the contract requires the company to support TENCAP, which provides actionable intelligence information to army commanders.

The contract, awarded in the year's second quarter, includes an eight-month base length with four optional years.

"We have been able to produce an abundance of courses of action for warfighter situational awareness."

Engility CEO Lynn Dugle said: "Our systems engineering knowledge, combined with insight into advanced science and technology and research and development initiatives within the intelligence community, has produced real-time cooperative data exchanges across the network of intelligence disciplines.

"As a result, we have been able to produce an abundance of courses of action for warfighter situational awareness."

Engility has maintained regular contact and interactions throughout the intelligence community (IC) under the TENCAP programme, as part of its contract with the army.

The IC components include Army G2, the National Reconnaissance Office, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency and the National Security Agency.

Engility and the TENCAP programme will develop intelligence support to meet warfighters' needs, under a partnership with IC agencies.

In April this year, Engility was contracted to provide support services to the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), which aims to counter chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and high-yield explosive (CBRNE) threats.

Under the $248m contract, Engility will provide technical consulting and systems engineering to the agency, working alongside its research and development directorate in the US Department of Defense's (DOD) Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction (CWMD) Combat Support Agency.
