The Jacobs Engineering Group has been contracted for software engineering and sustainment services for the U.S. Air Force's Patriot Excalibur system.

The software system ties together all functional areas of a squadron organization for information sharing and enhanced situational awareness.

"We are delighted to continue and expand our relationship with the United States Air Force, and to have the opportunity support the AFMC in its mission to deliver expeditionary capabilities to the warfighter," said Jacobs Group Vice President Robert Norfleet.

AFMC is the Florida-based Air Force Material Command, which issued the three-year contract, which carries a value of $27 million.

Under the terms of the contract, Jacobs will provide software engineering and sustainment services but additional details of the contract were not disclosed.

The Jacobs Engineering Group, headquartered in California, describes itself as a major provider of technical, professional, and construction services.
