Resource Consultants Inc. announced in March it has been awarded an indefinite-delivery and indefinite-quantity time and material contract. The five-year contract, valued at $49 million and scheduled to expire in March 2007, is for engineering and installation support to Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Charleston and the National Airspace System Modernization program.

The engineering and support phases, which will account for approximately 61% ($30 million) of the work, will be performed in Charleston.

The firm is currently fabricating a mobile airport (including a transportable Air Traffic Control Tower, a transportable radar, and a transportable communications facility) that can be shipped to locations throughout the world to assist with installations. The installation phase of this contract will make up approximately 39% ($19 million) of the work and will be performed at U.S. Navy and Marine Corps Air Stations around the world, including McMurdo Station, Antarctica.

RCI Charleston currently employs approximately 100 personnel, including electrical/electronics engineers, engineering technicians, electronic installation technicians, computer software engineers, logisticians, drafters and technical writers. The company expects to hire approximately 50 personnel over the next two years to fill the positions required by the new contract.
