Lockheed Martin to support US Army helicopters

26th June 2013 - 16:04 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Lockheed Martin will provide field and sustainment-level maintenance for US Army helicopters under a new contract awarded by the US Army Contracting Command, Redstone Arsenal. The contract, announced 25 June, has an initial funding value of $5 million.

Under the aircraft maintenance and logistics contract, Lockheed Martin will manage the army's Regional Aviation Sustainment Maintenance Central Operations at Fort Campbell, Ky., home of the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) and 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment.

The company will perform repair, reset, modification work and additional sustainment efforts for the AH-64, UH-60, CH-47 and OH-58 aircraft. The initial contract funding provides for transition efforts and programme management.

June Shrewsbury, vice president of Technical Services at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control, said: ‘We are honoured to support the army's aviation units at Fort Campbell, ensuring their aircraft are maintained to the highest standards and ready when they need them.’ 

Lockheed Martin has strong experience in delivering responsive aviation logistics programmes, including the US Navy's Tip-to-Tail contract to support its H-60 helicopter fleet, the US Army's Modernized Target Acquisition Designation Sight/Pilot Night Vision Sensor effort for its Apache aircraft, and the US Special Operations Forces Logistics Support contract.
