C-17 Engine Support Contract Worth About $1.4 Billion

Last week we wrote about the award to Boeing of the C-17 maintenance support contract. Now the Air Force is getting ready to award that company and Pratt & Whitney a contract to support the engines of the transport fleet. If all options on the contract are exercised it could be a three year one worth $1.4 billion.

Because C-17 production has been ended by the Obama Administration these kind of support contracts are the only work available for the aircraft. Both Boeing and P&W are looking at issues due to the decision to cancel the F-22 as well. P&W made the engines for that aircraft.

Most programs cost is the long term support and this is certainly a viable business model for many companies. There is no requirement that the be done by the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) although in this case the OEM is getting the work. In the past especially as the equipment gets older other companies are able to get the business.

Oshkosh Wins Another Contract

Following up on its recent MRAP-ATV and heavy truck contracts Oshkosh announced that they have been awarded another contract to build Family of Medium Tactical Vehicle (FMTV) trucks and trailers. This contract is called the rebuy program. If all options are exercised over the next five years the contract could be worth up to $2.6 billion.

The initial order is for about $280 million worth of the vehicles. The rebuy seems to indicate that this contract is to begin replenishing the supply of the vehicles in the Army. The U.S. lost a great deal of vehicles in Iraq and Afghanistan to IED and mines. These were of all types including tanks, armored personnel carriers and logistic support vehicles like the FMTV.

Land Munition Solutions 2009 — Management – Affordability – Precision

lms-09Land Munition Solutions 2009 — Management – Affordability – Precision

In an age of Counter Insurgent operations and rapid technological change, land based munitions and their requirements must be continually reviewed for both their relevance and reliability. Whether it is the way we manage them at home, the method of their delivery to theatre and to training establishments or their eventual use; effective land munition solutions are critical for greater efficiencies throughout their entire life cycle including their development, testing and fielding in operational theatres.

Many nations face challenges in their ability to manage their ammunition effectively including the types, age, amount and quality of their current stocks. This conference will look at what efficiencies can be made and what effect this has on keeping munitions safe, relevant and ready for distribution and use by the warfighter. At this conference you will learn:
• What effect have current operations had on our munitions acquisition and management strategy?
• What skills must we keep updated for an effective industrial base?
• What are the urgent operational requirements and what is affordable?
• What are we doing to make munitions safer for their handlers?
• How is the target set changing in operational theatres?
• What future solutions will increase lethality yet reduce collateral damage?

Land Munition Solutions will enable delegates to meet with those at the forefront of munitions development; top level technical, procurement and operational military personnel.

The format of the event – roundtable discussions, extended Q&A time, panel sessions and networking opportunities – will encourage participants to share knowledge and experience.

Northrop Grumman’s Biohazard Detection System Performs Eight Millionth Test

Raytheon Awarded $7 Million Phase 2 Contract From the Office of Naval Research

Northrop Gets Two Big Sustainment Contracts

Like Boeing recently winning a billion dollar support contract from the Air Force for the C-17 fleet Northrop Grumman received two large sustainment contracts yesterday. One each from the Air Force and the Navy. This kind of work certainly represents a good revenue stream for the contractors developing and producing large systems.

The first is for sustainment and maintenance of the B-2 fleet. This contract may be worth up to $3.4 billion over the next several years. The twenty aircraft fleet requires substantial support due to the complicated nature of the materials that it is made out of. The B-2 has been active in the former Global War on Terrorism as it does carry a large payload of conventional weapons.

The second contract is to refuel and refurbish the U.S.S. Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71). This was the third Nimitz class carrier to be built. This contract has a value of over $2.4 billion and will cover a three year period of work. This is a one time maintenance action that is expected to continue the life of the ship out 2036. As part of the contract Northrop Grumman at Newport News shipyard will upgrade a whole host of systems and improve the capability of the ship overall.

These types of contract are very valuable to a company as they provide a steady stream of income over several years. The major cost of a modern weapon system is not the development or procurement but the sustainment over the very long life that are exhibited today. The United States for example is flying fifty year old B-52 aircraft and driving twenty-five year old M1 tanks. Both systems have received constant maintenance and upgrades over the years keeping them relevant to the modern war fight.
