Boeing (NYSE: BA) and the C-17 system program office at Robins Air Force Base in Georgia signed a memorandum of understanding for the continuous sustainment of the C-17 Globemaster III military transport aircraft fleet, the Air Force website reported Wednesday.

As the prime contractor, Boeing provides systems engineering, field services, technical data, material and equipment management, maintenance and modifications, propulsion sustainment, program management and other support services for the C-17 platform, which is operated by the U.S., U.K., Canada, United Arab Emirates, Australia, India, Qatar and NATO.

The MOU was signed by Edward Dolanski, president of Boeing Government Services; Lynda Rutledge, program executive officer of the Mobility and Training Aircraft Directorate; Mark Angelo, C-17 Services vice president; Col. Scott Ekstrom, C-17 SPO manager; Col. Mark Delory of the Defense Contract Management Agency Carson in California.
