FAIRFAX, Va., Sept. 30 (UPI) -- General Dynamics One Source will provide technical support to the Federal Aviation Administration's NextGen Integration and Evaluation Capability laboratory.

The FAA task order, under its Systems Engineering Support 2020 Program, is for five years and carries a value of $12 million.
