S3 has received notification of award of the AMCOM Express Task Order (TO) to provide Technical Support to Army PEO Missile & Space Precision Fires Rocket and Missile Systems (PFRMS) Project Office (PO). The PFRMS PO has fielded launchers and weapons to the US Army, Joint programs, other US Military Services, and FMS customers for more than 30 years. The Project Office requires highly skilled and experienced engineers and technical systems experts to help develop, field and upgrade these weapon systems. S3 engineering will support the development, preparation, and coordination of plans for systems improvements to address Insensitive Munitions (IM) requirements, safety and hazard classification, propulsion systems, fuzes, alternative warheads and payloads, launch pod redesign, launcher improvements, and technology initiatives.
Over the next five years, S3 and its Teammates will provide technical expertise to address all lifecycles to assess, field, modify, improve, and mature systems across an extensive range of functional support areas. These areas include electrical/electronic engineering, systems engineering, mechanical engineering, quality engineering, production engineering, configuration and data management, GPS technology and policy, software development, and Foreign Military Sales (FMS) for a significant number of field artillery launchers and other products and systems. Launchers, rockets, and missiles that are supported by this task order include the M270A1, M270A1 variants, High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) and HIMARS variants, the Army Tactical Missile System (ATACMS) and ATACMS variants, Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System (GMLRS) and GMLRS variants, and Long Range Precision Fires type munitions.
S3 has proudly supported the PFRMS PO as the incumbent prime technical contractor for the past 17 years, and previously supported this Project Office for more than five years prior to the first O2K award in 2005. S3 has been truly fortunate to assemble and maintain an impressive professional group of six incredibly qualified teammates that include Banner Defense, CGI Federal, Lacey Nichole Enterprise, SPARTA/Parsons, TMI, and NTA on the current contract. To meet projected new challenges under this just awarded task order, S3 added three additional teammates: Gleason Research Associates, AI Signal Research, and Intuitive Research and Technology Corporation. We are extremely proud of the teamwork, professionalism, and dedication of these companies and their employees who provide critical support to the PO, have contributed immensely to our success to date, and made this award possible through their outstanding contributions to this team.
Mr. Dean Reese who reports to the S3 Director of AMCOM EXPRESS, Mr. Will Stewart, will continue to manage this very important TO. Located onsite at the PFRMS PO, Mr. Reese is readily available and empowered to execute the day-to-day management activities and to provide technical support to the munitions programs.
Upon notification of award, S3 CEO Jan Smith commented: “We are very excited and humbled to have been selected to continue our support the PFRMS PMO in support of the warfighter. We have always pointed to this work as one of our most significant achievements for AMCOM. We are truly thankful that we have been recognized by our customer with this award. We also appreciate very much our teammates for staying with this Team and all the employees (theirs and ours) who have made this work so successful.”
