Super Stallion, Sea Dragon aircraft sustainment support contract won by Sikorsky
STRATFORD, Conn. Department of Defense (DoD) officials selected Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin company, for a performance-based logistics contract to provide supply and logistics support to the entire fleet of in-service CH-53E Super Stallions and MH-53E Sea Dragon helicopters in support of U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) missions. The contract is valued at an estimated $717 million.
The scope of the performance-based logistics contract includes repairs, overhauls, spares, obsolescence mitigation, and asset management services over four years. Contract performance is based on material availability metrics with additional incentives added for demand reductions, maintainability enhancements and aircraft readiness contributions.
The contract will cover additional readiness-critical components, including main and tail rotor blades, main gearbox, main rotor head, flight control components as well as accessories such as refueling probe and cargo system components.
