Elbit and Ogden Air Logistic Complex partner to improve support for soldiers

Elbit Systems of America has signed a public-private partnership (PPP) agreement with Ogden Air Logistic Complex (OO-ALC) to improve support for US soldiers.

Elbit Systems of America has signed a public-private partnership (PPP) agreement with Ogden Air Logistic Complex (OO-ALC) to improve support for US soldiers.

The agreement defines how the two entities will work together during prospective contract opportunities to bring the best possible services and solutions to soldiers.

Under the agreement, the depot will have the opportunity to increase its workload and manpower, while the industry supplies engineering services and spares, benefitting both the private industry and government agency.

OO-ALC / OBP Strategic Partnering chief Michelle Hathaway said: "By entering into the PPP with Elbit Systems of America, we gain resources necessary to improve capabilities for our warfighter.

"OO-ALC provides logistics, support, maintenance, distribution and engineering management for actively flying US weapon systems including A-10 Thunderbolt II, B-2 Spirit, F-16 Fighting Falcon, and LGM-30G Minuteman III systems."

"Through the PPP, we are able to receive engineering data, quickly learn about advances in technology, gain or maintain certification levels, improve value engineering change proposals, strengthen training opportunities, provide direct labour and use existing facility infrastructure to support potential work in the areas of the F-16 radar systems, head up and head down displays, helmet mounted displays, depot / contract field team support, software development and new capabilities for laser systems."

Elbit Systems of America Airborne Solutions vice-president Kelly Dameron said: "The partnership agreement affords us the opportunity to strengthen our alliance with the ALC while reducing cost to the taxpayers.

Headquartered at Hill Air Force Base, Utah, OO-ALC provides logistics, support, maintenance, distribution and engineering management for actively flying US weapon systems including A-10 Thunderbolt II, B-2 Spirit, F-16 Fighting Falcon, and LGM-30G Minuteman III systems.
