Lockheed Martin CC-130J support extended

11th July 2016 - 08:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Lockheed Martin has received a $389 million (USD), five-year contract extension from the Canadian government to provide In Service Support (ISS) for the Royal Canadian Air Force’s fleet of 17 C-130J Super Hercules aircraft (CC-130J), the company announced on 7 July.

The contract, which comes under Canada’s Industrial and Technological Benefits Policy, will see Lockheed Martin make further investments in research and development and ensure that contract related work is carried out by small and medium-sized enterprises from across Canadian industry. 

Lockheed Martin has been supporting the CC-130J fleet since 2007, and is the lead in the ISS contract. The company provides all performance-based logistics to support the maintenance, sustainment and operations associated with the Canadian Super Hercules fleet.

Charles Bouchard, chief executive officer, Lockheed Martin Canada, said: ‘Lockheed Martin Canada takes great pride in witnessing the workhorse of the Royal Canadian Air Force operating in missions around the world – whether it is supporting humanitarian aid operations conducted by the Disaster Assistance Response Team or transporting troops and equipment to Canada’s far north. We are committed to keeping the CC-130J fleet mission ready and maintained to the highest operational standards.’
