L-3 starts work on KC-10 support contract

12th October 2016 - 14:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


L-3 Communications’ Vertex Aerospace division has started work to support the US Air Force (USAF) KC-10 aircraft fleet, the company announced on 11 October.

The firm-fixed-price, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, worth up to $1.9 billion over nine years, was awarded by the USAF in June, with the six-month phase-in period beginning on 27 September.

Under the contract, L-3 will provide depot maintenance support, a Field Service Representative (FSR) and Contractor Operated and Maintained Base Supply (COMBS) for 59 USAF KC-10 aircraft. It will also provide FSR and COMBS support for the aerial refuelling system for two Royal Netherlands Air Force KDC-10 aircraft.

Michael T Strianese, L-3’s chairman and chief executive officer, said: ‘This KC-10 contract award gives L-3 the opportunity to provide the air force and a key international ally with engineering innovation and affordable, best value solutions and services. This new business win also adds a new aircraft to our scope of contractor logistics support work and expands our business base.’
