L3Harris to Provide C-130 Aircraft Sustainment Services Under $668M Air Force Contract
L3Harris Technologies has secured a potential five-year, $668 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract to ensure the readiness of the C-130 aircraft fleet operated by the Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve Command.
The company will provide sustainment services in support of the C-130H and J-model aircraft at its modification facility in Waco, Texas. The center is equipped to handle missionization and aircraft services, including parallel avionics modernization and programmed depot-level maintenance, L3Harris said.
The facility offers aircraft maintenance to other military customers such as the Coast Guard, Navy and Marine Corps, as well as space, commercial and international operators.
Citing L3Harris' C-130 experience, Sean Stackley, president of integrated mission systems at L3Harris, expressed confidence in the company’s ability to assist the Air Force in maintaining its fleet readiness.
According to Stackley, a past Wash100 winner, the company’s services will alleviate capacity constraints for the U.S. Air Force’s Air Logistics complexes.
Work provided under the contract supports the U.S. Air Force Avionics Modernization Program Increment 2.
The award builds on previous aircraft maintenance contracts secured by L3Harris.
In November, the company secured a firm-fixed-price contract to missionize three new King Air 350ER aircraft for the Canadia Department of National Defense. The contract required L3Harris to perform sensor integration, install secure communications and navigation systems and conduct pilot, operator and maintenance training.
