SAN DIEGO, May 6, 2015 – Tapestry Solutions was recently awarded the Global Decision Support System (GDSS) contract for application support services with the United States Air Force. GDSS operates in real-time, or near real-time, to accurately direct or re-direct forces, and provide current air operations situational awareness.
GDSS replaced multiple legacy systems with a single enhanced Command and Control (C2) decision support system using open systems infrastructure and a shared relational database. It is AMC’s C2 decision support system that assists the Defense Transportation System (DTS) in executing mobility force movements around the globe.
“Being able to sustain and enhance GDSS to further extend C2 capabilities to the warfighter is important to Tapestry Solutions,” stated Tony Rigazzi, Vice President Defense Product Group. “We look forward to working with GDSS stakeholders to enhance and solidify the Mobility Air Forces ability to operate across the full spectrum of military operations.”
The five-year contract is valued at over $47 Million. All work will be performed for the Air Mobility Command (AMC) at Scott Air Force Base, Illinois starting in April 2015. Tapestry Solutions, a subsidiary of The Boeing Company, will maintain and enhance GDSS through Sept 2019.
