Rockwell Collins has received a $22 million contract from the US Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) to provide support for the Robins Air Force Base (AFB) maintenance depot, the company announced on 10 January.

As the DLA’s first performance-based logistics (PBL) agreement with the US Air Force, the contract will initially run for three years with Rockwell Collins providing total supply chain management for replacement parts on the AN/ARC-171, AN/ARC-190 and AN/ARR-85 airborne communication products.

The agreement will ensure greater visibility to demand at the depot maintenance line, reduced inventory and infrastructure costs, value added logistics, engineering support and obsolescence management.

Alan Prowse, vice president and managing director, Americas, for Rockwell Collins, said: ‘Keeping the warfighter’s mission needs as the top priority, we collaborated with the DLA and experts at Robins AFB to develop a tailored parts management solution. Our teamwork will produce successful, measurable, repeatable results, while allowing the air force to truly authenticate the value PBLs have.’
