The U.S. Air Force awarded General Atomics Aeronautical Systems Inc. $32.3 million worth of work, which is expected to last two and a half years.

Under a new delivery order to a previously awarded contract, GA-ASI will produce Block 30 ground control stations at its factory in Poway.

The Pentagon announced the sole-source deal Dec. 7. The Air Force Life Cycle Management Center at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio awarded the work.
