Huntington Ingalls Industries Awarded Task Order To Support U.S. Africa Command’s Life-Saving Operations

NEWPORT NEWS—Huntington Ingalls Industries’ Technical Solutions division was recently awarded a contract to provide personnel recovery and casualty evacuation services (PR/CASEVAC) for U.S. Africa Command (USAFRICOM) and partner nations. The One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services task order, issued by the Federal Systems Integration and Management Center under the General Services Administration, has a one-year base and four one-year options with a total potential value of $346 million.

“We understand the importance of PR/CASEVAC, particularly to the continuing U.S. strategic presence in Africa,” said Garry Schwartz, president of Technical Solutions’ Defense and Federal Solutions Business group. “As a retired Marine with first-hand experience in the Horn of Africa, I recognize the unique challenges of the region and what this service means to the commanders and soldiers on the ground. We are honored to support life-saving operations for our nation’s service members.”

HII will provide a variety of aircraft and operational support services for USAFRICOM, including planning, management, maintenance, logistics, and airlift/airdrop services and emergency medical care. HII’s support will help reduce evacuation response and transport times, improve program efficiency, and maximize survival rates of personnel within the east Africa area of operations.
