FAIRFAX, Va. – September 1, 2022 – ECS, a leader in advanced technology, science, and digital transformation solutions, has won a five-year recompete contract valued at $53M in support of the USTRANSCOM Global Air Transportation Execution System (GATES).

GATES manages all air and sea cargo and passenger movements for Department of Defense (DoD) missions, enabling operators at air and sea ports to manage the movement of cargo to its ultimate destination. GATES also provides passenger processing capabilities, including required checks with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and mission-specific In-Transit Visibility (ITV) data for USTRANSCOM and other United States Combatant Commands.
