General Atomics Aeronautical Systems has won a $110,261,703 contractmodification to continue helping the U.S. Army sustain its fleet of Gray Eagleunmanned aircraft systems.

This modification increases the total value of the previously awarded cost-plus-incentive-fee contract to $354,683,431, the Defense Department said Tuesday.

GA-ASI will perform work in Afghanistan and the Army is allocating fiscal year 2013 operations and maintenance funds for the award, along with other procurement funds.

In August 2012, GA-ASI helped two federal agencies test the Gray Eagle and its transponders as the company aims to have the UAS be interoperable with civilian and military air traffic control systems.
