Kaysville, Utah, June 21, 2010: General Atomics Systems Integration, LLC (GA-SI) has been awarded a $1.3M multi-year task order by Dynamics Research Corporation (DRC) under the Design Engineering Support Program (DESP II) services contract to provide technical order systems malfunction analysis and consolidation for the United States Air Force (USAF) 827th Aircraft Sustainment Group (827 ACSG) at Tinker Air Force Base.  The 827 ACSG is the program office with fleet responsibility for the C/KC-135 aircraft which is the backbone of USAF mobility, providing air refuel and transport support to United States and Allied forces.  GA-SI has been providing engineering services to 827 ACSG since 2006 and this is the sixth C/KC-135 award to GA-SI.
