General Atomics Aeronautical Systems will get $85.5 million for logistics support and related services in and outside the USA, the Pentagon says.

The programme will support the US Army's MQ-1C Gray Eagle unmanned air vehicle, which General Atomics refers to as the Warrior or Sky Warrior. The company says the new contract, which was not part of the army's original procurement deal for the Gray Eagle, is standard.

The armed, extended-range multi-purpose UAV is operational in Afghanistan and Iraq. The system is a variant of General Atomics' MQ-1 Predator design.
