Honeywell has been awarded a follow-on five year contract, worth $181 million, from the U.S. Navy’s Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP) Weapon Systems Support (WSS). Honeywell will provide logistics support for auxiliary power units (APUs) on the F/A-18 A-G, P-3 and C-2 aircraft, as well as F/A -18 main fuel controls (MFC) and the P-3 engine-driven compressor (EDC).
Honeywell, under Public-Private Partnership (P3 ) with the depot workforce at the Navy’s Fleet Readiness Center-East in Cherry Point, NC and Fleet Readiness Center-Southeast in Jacksonville, FL, has supported multiple products, including APUs, on Navy applications for NAVSUP WSS via a unique Performance-Based Logistics program since 2000. Since program inception, military operators have enjoyed marked improvement in logistics support, including $50 million in savings, through 97% or greater on-time delivery, increased on-wing time for all products, improved reliability and more.
“Honeywell has a long standing history with logistics support with NAVSUP and we’ve shown that our initiatives have improved reliability and availability of aircraft for the Navy, while lowering maintenance costs by over $50 million,” said Brian Sill, Vice President of Defense Americas Aftermarket, Defense & Space for Honeywell Aerospace. “With this new contract, we will continue to provide the Navy with the same experience it has had over the previous decade and continue to help lower overall cost of sustainment of these aircraft fleets.”
