HUNTSVILLE – Huntsville’s SMX has been awarded the Future Long Range Assault Aircraft program services contact valued at $84.5 million over five years. Based at Bridge Street Town Center, SMX will provide engineering, logistics, and acquisition and strategic planning services to U.S. Army ASA and PEO Aviation.

The award gives SMX the opportunity to extend its support for the key Future Vertical Lift  program through 2027, paving the way for long-term support to one of the Army’s “Big 6” modernization priorities.

“We are proud to continue our partnership with Program Executive office, Aviation’s FLRAA project office, helping to achieve their mission to develop and field the next generation of affordable vertical lift tactical assault/utility aircraft for the Army,” said Sandeep Dorawala, president of engineering & IT for SMX. “This work builds on our mission focused delivery to the FLRAA program since 2017, and further extends our commitment to creating long term SMX career development opportunities for engineering, acquisition, logistics, and technology professionals in Huntsville.”

To support its strategic growth with Redstone Arsenal clients and the Huntsville market, SMX recently hired Charles Hawkins as vice president for the Army division for the engineering & IT business unit.
