Cohort's MASS wins contract extension

Cohort subsidiary MASS has been awarded a nine-year extension to its managed IT service contract for the Sentry Whole Life Support Programme (WLSP) at RAF Waddington. Valued at around £12m, the scope of the support contract now includes replacement of the Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul software and adds an Enterprise Performance Management solution.

The team is led by Northrop Grumman with MASS, AAR Corp and Cobham Aviation Services partnering together to support and maintain the availability of the UK's fleet of Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) aircraft.

Northrop Grumman commented that this nine-year extension recognises MASS's agile response to ever-changing needs and the provision of a first-rate, value for money service.
