Honeywell to support power units for USN aircraft
Honeywell has received a $11.5 million contract modification from the US Navy for the repair, replacement and programme support for auxiliary power units used on F/A-18A-G, P-3 Orion, and C-2 Greyhound aircraft.
It will also cover the provision of coverage for the main fuel controls and electronic control unit used on the F/A-18 and the P-3 engine driven compressor.
In addition to support for domestic programmes, the contract includes support for the Royal Australian Air Force’s F/A-18 Super Hornet fighters under the Foreign Military Sales programme, although this represents less than 1% of the estimated contract value.
This contract modification covers a four-month period and is expected to be complete by December 2019, bringing the total estimated value of the contract to come $260 million.
Work will be performed in Jacksonville in Florida, Cherry Point in North Carolina, and at other contractor facilities.
Navy FY19 funds will be obligated as individual task orders are issued, and funds will not expire before the end of the current fiscal year.
