FALLS CHURCH, Va. (AP) — Privately held defense contractor DynCorp International said Thursday it won a deal worth up to $490 million for aircraft maintenance at a Navy facility in Maryland.
The contract has a base year value of $92.8 million plus four option years.
DynCorp will provide maintenance help at the Navy's air warfare center in Patuxent River, Md. The company will work on test and evaluation aircraft and for the Navy's test pilot school.
DynCorp has its roots in aircraft repair work but more recently has won work as a security contractor in Iraq, Afghanistan, Bosnia and other places. This year, it agreed to pay $7.7 million to settle a lawsuit alleging it submitted false claims for a State Department program to train police in Iraq.
