Boeing - Harrier AV-8B Logistics Contract

Boeing : 08 June, 2007  (New Product)
The Boeing Company on June 7 signed a five-year $258.5 million performance-based logistics contract with an option for an additional five years with the U.S. Department of Defense to support AV-8B Harriers operated by the U.S. Marine Corps, Italy and Spain.
The Harrier Integrated Supply Support (HISS) program includes asset repair management (spares and consumables), meeting delivery response times, obsolescence management, reliability and maintainability improvements, warehousing, configuration management, technology insertion, transportation and other innovative supply support solutions.

Boeing is establishing partnerships with fleet readiness centers in North Island, Calif., and Cherry Point, N.C., through the agreement. The HISS program supports numerous AV-8B systems, including a combination of electromechanical, avionics, electrical and structural components made up of approximately 1,050 stock items.

This performance-based logistics approach captures the efficiencies of commercial business practices and integrates the efforts of multiple original equipment manufacturers with the oversight of the program through one commercial integrator, said Pat Finneran, president of Support Systems, a business unit of Boeing Integrated Defense Systems.

'Boeing has been committed to designing and implementing HISS as an effective performance-based logistics agreement that improves asset availability and reduces backorders while reducing total cost of ownership for the customer,' Finneran said. 'The Harrier continues to play a vital role for warfighters in the field every day. It is imperative that we prolong the life of the fleet while keeping costs affordable.'

The Harrier is a multi-mission, short-takeoff vertical landing tactical strike aircraft. Because of its short-to-vertical takeoff and landing capabilities, it possesses flexibility unmatched by other fixed-wing aircraft.
