Rockwell Collins has been selected by L-3 Communications to support the repair of parts on the US Air Force's KC-10 aircraft, the company announced on 10 July.

The contract will see the company support the repair of over 500 parts on 59 KC-10 aircraft. Rockwell Collins will work with its subsidiary Intertrade to manage 4,000 repairs annually.

Rockwell Collins and Intertrade will provide logistics support through a distribution center in Memphis, Tennessee. This programme, with a required quick repair turnaround time, is important to sustain mission critical operations of the KC-10 aircraft.
