F-22 Raptor

Rockwell Collins has secured a contract to provide sustainment services for F-22 Raptor cockpit displays to the US Air Force (USAF) and Lockheed Martin.

Under the terms of $14.3m contract, the company will supply sustainment services for cockpit displays present onboard a total of 184 F-22 aircraft.

Rockwell Collins Service Solutions vice president and general manager Scott Gunnufson said the contract continues the company’s public-private partnership with the air force and Lockheed.

”Our model of providing sustainment services, while also sharing our technology and skill sets, has added to the reliability of this crucial warfighting platform and has enhanced its operational readiness,” Gunnufson added.

Additional contract responsibility includes training the US Department of Defense (DoD) personnel in performance, maintenance, repair, as well as modernisation of the F-22 displays.

Contract work is scheduled to be carried out over the next four years at Hill Air Force Base (AFB) in Ogden, Utah, and also at the company’s repair facility in Atlanta, US.

Meanwhile, the company also received two separate contracts from the USAF and Air National Guard (ANG) for delivery of service and support for their respective KC-135 Pacer Compass, Radar and GPS (CRAG) programmes.

Featuring one base year and three one-year options, the USAF contract covers the Rockwell Collins Multimode Weather Radar and comprises nearly 4,000 line replaceable units across the fleet of 417 KC-135 Stratotanker, while the $4.8m ANG contract has a three-year base-performance period.

The Pacer CRAG programme is a commercial off-the-shelf modification programme that eliminates the navigator requirement on most missions.

It represents the air force’s commitment to extend the KC-135 fleet’s functional life to 2040, which is when the tanker is scheduled to be decommissioned.
