COLORADO SPRINGS, Oct. 4 (UPI) -- ITT Exelis reports it has won two separate logistics support contract from the U.S. Army.

The first, issued by the U.S. Army Mission and Installation Contracting Command, is a five-year award for services at Fort Rucker, Ala. It is cost-plus and firmed-fixed-fee vehicle worth $43 million.

Company work -- maintenance operations, supply services, and transportation -- will be performed through the Fort Rucker Logistics Readiness Center.

"We are very pleased to be selected as the logistics provider for the Army's Aviation Center of Excellence," said Ken Hunzeker, president of the Mission Systems division of ITT Exelis. "We look forward to providing this critical mission support to the Fort Rucker community."

The second contract is from the Army Sustainment Command, Rock Island, Ill, for a key program -- the Enhanced Army Global Logistics Enterprise, which is to replace the Army's Field and Installations Readiness Support Team contract.

As one of a number of EAGLE program awardees, ITT Exelis will submit proposals on multiple task order requests of future logistics requirements.

The award is for five years and carries an overall ceiling value of $23.5 billion.

"Our longstanding participation in the FIRST program has prepared us well for EAGLE, and we are looking forward to continuing to provide support to important programs like the Army Prepositioned Stocks and other sustainment contracts across the Army's logistics enterprise," Hunzeker said.
