GDIT to support FAA's DVARS program design and implementation efforts

FALLS CHURCH, Va. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) officials tasked General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT) to design, implement, install, and maintain their Data, Visualization, Analysis and Reporting System (DVARS). The single-award, indefinite delivery/ indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract holds a total estimated value of $99 million. It includes a two-year base period with five one-year options.

DVARS will consist of commercial offerings as well as custom software components. This will support the FAA's strategic plan to improve their capabilities, access data, and perform analyses on National Air Space (NAS) operations. DVARS will also facilitate integrating new types of user technologies into the airspace and evaluate their effectiveness once implemented.

Under contract, GDIT will support DVARS by introducing a number of technological enhancements, including the migration to an enterprise architecture. Added benefits include streamlined system updates and expanded online user access. Commercial offerings for functions such as reporting and visualization will further enable the FAA to leverage market best practices and product improvements.
