Boeing Defence Australia (BDA) will provide integrated logistics support (ILS) during the next stage of development of the prototypes of Thales Australia's Hawkei Protected Mobility Vehicle – Light, it has been announced.

The contract will be delivered under Stage 2 of the ‘Manufactured and Supported in Australia’ option for the LAND 121 Phase 4 programme.

Under the AU$3.5 million contract, BDA will deliver ILS services to the Thales team for six Hawkei prototypes and a trailer that will be delivered to the Australian government for further testing, the company said in a statement.

‘During the 16-month prototype production and testing phase, BDA will work with Thales Australia to help increase the vehicles' long-term availability and maintainability, with the goal of reducing future support costs,’ the statement said.

‘This includes delivering development and training to operators, conducting logistics support analysis and providing logistic engineering support to the Thales design team.’

BDA has provided ILS services to Australian Defence Force acquisition programmes such as Wedgetail AEW&C and Vigilare while the company continues to provide operational lifecycle support for aircraft including Hornets, Super Hornets and the C-17 Globemaster III integrated sustainment programme.
