Services Provided At Seven Military Bases
Rolls-Royce has been awarded a $7
million contract from the U.S. Air Force (USAF) to provide
comprehensive aircraft engine management services at seven military
bases in the U.S. The five-year agreement is designed to improve
efficiencies and cost-effectiveness for monitoring engine
operational data and includes asset tracking and management in
support of USAF airlift and aerial refueling missions.
Rolls-Royce has partnered with TKC
Aerospace, an Alaskan Native-owned corporation, which will be
performing specific engine management, planner/scheduler and
documentation roles at the designated USAF locations. Rolls-Royce
will provide a manager to oversee the team, based in Illinois at
Scott Air Force Base.
David Waggoner, President of Rolls-Royce Defense Services Inc.
said: "We are pleased to be entering into this new partnership with
the United States Air Force Air Mobility Command and consider this
an important step toward providing enhanced support services to our
Air Force customers. We have structured an innovative support
solution that reduces risk and enables the USAF to concentrate on
its primary mission."
The contract is administered by Headquarters Air Mobility
Command at Scott AFB. The work will be performed at seven USAF
locations - Dyess AFB, Texas; Dover AFB, Delaware; McConnell AFB,
Kansas; Fairchild AFB, Washington; Grand Forks AFB, North Dakota;
MacDill AFB, Florida; and Travis AFB, California.
