ARINC Inc. of Annapolis has won a contract worth a potential $73.9 million to provide technical support to the Naval Air Warfare Center at Patuxent River.

The one-year, $8 million contract has four years of options that greatly increase its potential value.

ARINC, which designs and operates communications and information processing systems, will lead a team of smaller companies in the work.

The job involves supporting aircraft testing activities consolidated at Patuxent River by the federal Base Realignment and Closure Commission. ARINC and its partners will provide engineering and technical services in the testing of avionics systems such as sensors and mission computer software.

"This is a win-win for the economy in the state of Maryland," U.S. Sen. Paul Sarbanes said in a news release. "ARINC will add jobs as a result of the overall $73.9 million contract and will continue to enhance Patuxent River's Naval testing and evaluation operations, which is also good for the economy of Southern Maryland."

ARINC, with annual revenues of $300 million, employs more than 2,200 workers in offices around the world.
