Rockwell Collins signs Lockheed Martin F-22 contract
Rockwell Collins will provide cockpit display support for the US Air Force’s fleet of F-22 aircraft under a new contract announced on 17 April. The sustainment services contract, with F-22 programme manager Lockheed Martin, has a value of $14.3 million and will run for a four-year period.
The contract will see Rockwell Collins train US Department of Defense personnel to perform maintenance, repair and overhaul on the cockpit displays of 184 F-22 aircraft. The work will take place at Hill Air Force Base in Ogden, Utah, and at the company’s repair facility in Atlanta.
Scott Gunnufson, vice president and general manager of Service Solutions for Rockwell Collins, said: ‘This contract continues our strong public-private partnership with the [US] Air Force and Lockheed Martin, which has resulted in industry-leading programme performance. We look forward to continuing that success.
‘Our model of providing sustainment services, while also sharing our technology and skill sets, has added to the reliability of this crucial warfighting platform and has enhanced its operational readiness.’
