L-3 Wins $104M Navy Contract to Sustain P-3 Aircraft Fleet

L-3 Communications‘ (NYSE: LLL) platform integration division has won a U.S. Navy competitively awarded indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract worth approximately $104 million to perform aircraft sustainment for the U.S. Navy’s fleet of P-3, EP-3 and NP-3 aircraft.

The award follows a previous program awarded to L-3 in 2005. The program corrects deficiencies to ensure safe and reliable operation. It also enhances the aircrafts’ service life expectancies to sustain inventory levels throughout the service period.

L-3’s work includes a range of aircraft sustainment and modernization activities, including:

  • P-3 outer wing refurbishment
  • P-3 outer wing installation
  • Special structural inspection kits
  • Phased maintenance inspections
  • Modification and installation programs

Work will be performed on all types, models and series of P-3 aircraft in the 147-aircraft U.S. Navy fleet.

“We are extremely pleased to be selected to continue our work keeping the P-3 mission-ready and flying safely, ” said Nick Farah, executive vice president of L-3 Platform Systems. “Our ability to accomplish airframe sustainment concurrently with system integration will return these aircraft to service rapidly and affordably.”
