Pentagon Performance Receives UAS Notification Of Award

Contract Valued At $50 Million To Provide ISR Services To UN MONUSCO Mission

Pentagon Performance Inc. (PPI), a South Jersey based Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) manufacturing company, has received Notice of Consideration for Award of a $50 million contract to provide intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance services to the United Nations MONUSCO mission located in the Democratic Republic of Congo. PPI's Medium Altitude Long Endurance (MALE) UAS system, designated the "SureCam", will meet an urgent requirement for surveillance operations to support the mission.

"We are proud to partner with the United Nations to provide critical technology that will protect and assist our United Nations peacekeeping personnel" said Anthony LaSure, president and CEO of PPI. "This award is a great example of the innovative solutions offered by an American company to provide a value added solution that will ultimately save lives."

PPI submitted its proposal in October 2016 and entered a competitive United Nations Procurement evaluation process. The thorough evaluation process included review of technical and quality requirements specified in the solicitation, financial and commercial requirements against prevailing market conditions, and full supplier evaluation. PPI was approved for the award by the United Nations Headquarters Committee on Contracts. Notification to PPI was made on September 25, 2017. PPI is now in the final stages of contract negotiation for mutually agreeable terms and conditions to provide service to the United Nations.

"Pentagon Performance is at the forefront of the rapidly developing UAS industry and we're excited that they selected Millville Executive Airport to be their base of operations," said Thomas Cook, Executive Director of the DRBA. "PPI's contract with the United Nations is expected to create more than 20 high tech and administrative jobs at the Millville facility and their increasing footprint in the UAS industry sets the stage for the Millville Airport and the South Jersey region to become a hub for UAS innovation and manufacturing."
