◆ Sustainment Management
Due to outstanding performance, the REF further challenged STS by adding several unique projects to its scope of work, which included sustainment of Patriot missile battery cooling systems and solar-powered hybrid energy systems, and the fielding and training of a man-portable, tactical electronic warfare device like the Project VALCOUR Versatile Radio, Observation & Direction (VROD)/ VROD Modular Adaptive tX (Transmitter) (VMAX). STS has received nothing less than very good to exceptional on all CPARS reporting on the REF Services contract to date. STS’ full lifecycle logistics and sustainment in support of the systems have regularly met or exceeded performance objectives and have achieved an operational readiness rate of 93%.
