: 24 January, 2009  (Company News)
Rockwell Collins has signed a 10-year extension to provide Performance Based Logistics (PBL) service and support for U.S. Coast Guard aircraft, including three new platforms. The contract is valued at $35 million.


The new platforms include the MH-60T, HC-130H/J, and HC-144A. Other U.S. Coast Guard platforms supported by Rockwell Collins are the HH-65 and HU-25. The new PBL contract with the Coast Guard expands Rockwell Collins' support of their fleet from 112 aircraft to 213 aircraft.

The 10-year fixed price per flight hour agreement provides guaranteed availability levels through spares management, logistical support, field service engineering, and component reliability improvements for Rockwell Collins' comprehensive suite of displays, communication, surveillance, navigation, and pilot control systems.

'This contract extension validates our commitment to providing a comprehensive support solution for the Coast Guard's fleet,' said Ken Estelle, vice president and general manager of Technical Service Solutions for Rockwell Collins. 'Our ability to maintain very high availability rates provides great value to our customers.'

Performance Based Logistics evolved from supply chain management concepts with the objective of improving operational capability while reducing costs through a collaborative environment among stakeholders. Rockwell Collins is an industry leader in supply chain management, having been awarded Purchasing magazine's Medal of Excellence in 2005.

Rockwell Collins' global network of more than 80 locations provides repair and overhaul of Avionics equipment for commercial, business, corporate and military operations. Additional logistics capabilities include on-board services, service parts, training and simulator systems and services, technical information services and technical services.
