Rolls-Royce has signed an agreement with the US Air Force (USAF) to continue to provide support for the propulsion systems on its fleet of C-130J aircraft.

The five-year MissionCare contract covers AE 2100D3 engines, plus propellers and nacelles on the C-130J aircraft.

Rolls-Royce will provide engineering and sustainment support, repair, inventory management and technical data.

Initially, the contract will cover 194 aircraft and 896 engines, and will expand as the air force fleet grows to 244 aircraft and 1,150 engines by 2022. Over the five-year period, the total value of the contract is expected to exceed $845 million.

Rolls-Royce MissionCare provides a sustainment system, offering the capabilities and expertise to maximise engine propulsion system availability. MissionCare lowers customer sustainment costs, reduces administrative burden and prevents customer disruption for technical reasons.
