A $17.2 million contract renewal will allow Rockwell Collins to build on its track record of providing 100 percent availability of helicopter cockpit replacement parts for its Common Avionics Architecture System for the U.S. Army’s 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (SOAR).
“The overall goal of this program is to assist the 160th SOAR in reducing the amount of spares that are required on the shelf, so spares can be used where they are needed most,” said Scott Gunnufson, vice president and general manager of Service Solutions for Rockwell Collins. “This contract speaks to the effectiveness of our performance based logistics programs that consistently exceed our customers’ requirements for parts availability.”
The Life Cycle Contractor Support award provides Performance Based Logistics (PBL) support for all Rockwell Collins Cockpit Management System (CMS) and Common Avionics Architecture System (CAAS) components and associated peripheral equipment.
Rockwell Collins' Performance Based Logistics programs combine best practices with proven expertise to meet the customers’ operational requirements. These flexible programs enable customers to shrink their spare and repair pipeline, enhancing equipment to improve reliability and integrating the logistics chain to increase system efficiency and effectiveness. Benefits include enhanced mission readiness, improved reliability, ongoing access to technology, and guaranteed spares availability and performance levels.
