L3 Subsidiary Gets $173M Navy T-45 Aircraft Support Contract Option

An L3 Technologies (NYSE: LLL) subsidiary has secured a potential $173 million contract modification to help the U.S. Navy maintain 201 T-45 Goshawk trainer aircraft units, systems and related support equipment.

Vertex Aerospace will provide intermediate, organizational and depot-level engineering, logistics and maintenance services for the service branch’s T-45 fleet, the Defense Department said Wednesday.

The modification exercises an option under a previously indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity requirements contract and work runs through September 2018.

Work will occur at multiple naval air stations in Texas, Mississippi, Florida and Maryland.

T-45 is built to prepare U.S. Marine Corps and Navy pilots for carrier aviation and tactical strike missions.
