AAI Corp. has been awarded a $206 million U.S. Army contract for work on the Australia's RQ-7B Shadow drone program.

The cost-plus-fixed-fee foreign military sales contract will cover contractor logistics sustainment services for Shadow.

Work will be performed in Maryland with an estimated completion date of October 2017.

The Army Contracting Command is the contracting entity.

The Shadow provides reconnaissance, surveillance, target acquisition and force protection for brigades in all weather and at all hours.

It features a 20-foot wingspan and a 60-pound payload capacity.

It can fly for nine hours at a time and is currently operational with the Army and U.S. Marine Corps.

The Australian military took custody of its first Shadow drones in 2011.
