FAIRFAX, Va. CGI (NYSE:GIB) won four contracts totaling $92.5 million to support four U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command (AMCOM) programs to help ensure the readiness of more than 90 major aviation and missile systems throughout their life cycles.
AMCOM develops and delivers responsive aviation, missile, and calibration materiel readiness to the U.S. Army in order to optimize joint warfighter capabilities at the point of need. As a Life Cycle Management Command, AMCOM provides integrated engineering, logistics, and contracting to more than 90 major aviation and missile systems throughout their life cycles, which accounts for roughly half the systems in the U.S. Army.
CGI is part of a subcontracting team to the incumbent prime contractor on each of the five-year contracts.

The contract awards are spread over four different programs within AMCOM:
In conjunction with its partners, CGI will provide the Precision Fires Rocket and Missile Systems (PFRMS) Project Office with acquisition process and software development support. Specifically, CGI will provide continued services for the Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS) Precision Guided Munitions acquisition and programmatic process. CGI will also support the acquisition process and software development for MLRS launchers as well as the MLRS documentation configuration management process.
CGI will continue to assist the AMCOM Logistics Center (ALC) with Reliability Improvement through Failure Identification and Reporting (RIMFIRE) process support. The RIMFIRE process is a closed-loop system designed to identify and track root equipment failure causes, determine candidates for corrective action, and verify the effectiveness of corrective actions. Successful identification and correction of design errors, manufacturing defects, improper maintenance, and early wear can help improve equipment reliability.

In continuing a long-standing engagement with the Utility Helicopter Project Management Office (UHPMO), CGI will ensure execution of UHPMO acquisition initiatives for the U.S. Army's UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter program. As part of its solution, CGI will help enable various mission requirements including ongoing research and development, production, sustainment, modifications, retrofit, Foreign Military Sales (FMS), modernization, and recapitalization programs in support of the Army's UH-60 fleet.
CGI will provide configuration, data management, status accounting, and standardization services for AMCOM's Research, Development and Engineering Center's (RDEC) Technical Data Management Division (TDMD) in direct support of AMCOM's weapon systems and soldiers. As part of the team, CGI will help ensure that TDMD's technical data is accurate for both configuration management of weapon systems and procurement actions, benefitting the soldier in the field.
