Honeywell Aerospace has been awarded a contract modification from the U.S. Air Force to provide depot maintenance support for the F-15’s secondary power system (SPS). Work will be performed under Public-Private Partnership with the Hill Air Force Base Depot Workforce in Utah through January 2020.
Installed on every F-15 worldwide, the SPS provides two main functions: power for engine starting and power to aircraft accessories once the engines are self-sustaining. The SPS consists of the jet fuel starter, two hydraulic accumulators, a central gearbox and left/right airframe mounted accessory drives.
This contract represents potential value of up to $355 million through January 2020. The contract amendment, known as Secondary Power Logistics Solution (SPLS)-II, is an extension of the existing Air Force SPLS-I contract signed in 2007 to provide depot-level logistics services and maintenance for SPS components on the B-2 Spirit stealth bomber, C-130 Hercules transport and ground carts.
