The Army has selected SMX to provide program services for the Future Long-Range Assault Aircraft, the company announced Tuesday.

The five-year, $84.5 million contract requires SMX to provide engineering, logistics, acquisition and strategic planning services related to the FLRAA program for the Army acquisition chief and the program executive office for aviation.

“With this award, SMX has the opportunity to extend their support of this key Future Vertical Lift program through 2027, paving the way for long term support to one of the Army’s Big 6 modernization priorities,” according to the announcement.

Bell and a joint proposal between Sikorsky and Boeing are competing to provide the aircraft for the Army.
