USA: Raytheon, NAVSUP Ink Warning Receiver Supply Support Contract

Raytheon, NAVSUP Ink Warning Receiver Supply Support Contract

NAVSUP Weapon Systems Support recently awarded a Performance Based Logistics (PBL) contract to Raytheon Company based out of Goleta, Calif., for AN/ALR-67(V)3 Radar Warning Receiver supply support.

The four-year, firm fixed price contract is valued at just over $89 million and provides supply support and repairs of nine Weapons Replaceable Assemblies for the AN/ALR-67(V)3 Radar Warning Receiver used on the F/A-18 A/B/C/D/E/F aircraft. The PBL contract also includes Cooperative Logistics Supply Support Arrangement (CLSSA)/Repairable Item Replaceable Option (RIRO) support for the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) and Canadian Forces F/A-18 aircraft.

The ALR-67(V)3 is an advanced radar warning receiver used on all front-line, carrier-based F/A-18 A-F tactical aircraft. It enhances survivability in today’s complex, high-density environment through improved situational awareness. Raytheon has been providing support for the ALR-67(V)3 Radar Warning Receiver system via PBL since September 1999 and has historically produced solid levels of material availability and reliability. The ALR-67(V)3 PBL contract renewal with Raytheon leverages the expertise and best practices gained over the past 12 years of PBL performance.

“2012 has been a year of PBL contract renewals at NAVSUP WSS. This demonstrates our commitment to renewing PBL contracts where the contractor’s performance improves material availability and aircraft readiness while delivering cost savings to the fleet,” said Capt. Chris Mosher, NAVSUP Weapon Systems Support director of Contracts.

“The ALR-67(V)3 PBL renewal contract with Raytheon is no exception. The renewed ALR-67(V)3 PBL contract will continue to support fleet readiness by maximizing logistics support while achieving a lower overall cost to the government and the best possible value to the taxpayer,” Mosher added.

A field activity of the Naval Supply Systems Command, NAVSUP Weapon Systems Support is the U.S. Navy’s supply chain manager providing worldwide support to the aviation, surface ship, and submarine communities. Formerly known as the Naval Inventory Control Point (NAVICP), NAVSUP Weapon Systems Support provides Navy, Marine Corps, joint and allied forces with products and services that deliver combat capability through logistics. With more than 2,000 civilian and military personnel employed at its two Pennsylvania sites, NAVSUP Weapon Systems Support’s Philadelphia site supports aircraft while its Mechanicsburg site supports ships and submarines.

Offshore Patrol Vessels Technology 2016

Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPVs) are becoming an increasingly important resource for Navies and Coast Guards around the world. As shipbuilding technologies continue to advance the mission scope for a single OPV platform greatly increases. Policing missions such as Counter-Piracy and Counter-Terrorism operations can be supplemented now by survey and Mine Countermeasure operations simply by swapping equipment on board the ship. This is all done with a greatly reduced cost compared to mission-specific platforms or full scale warships which have greater maintenance and operations costs compared to flexible OPVs.

Therefore SMi is proud to announce that it will be launching its inaugural OPV Technology event which will focus on the new potential for OPVs within this proliferation in combat and combat support technology capabilities. The event will be held in London on the 8th-9th June to discuss how individual nations are working to enhance the capabilities of their coastal fleets as well as the prospect for future cooperation and interoperability.

Expert speaker line up for 2016 includes key decision makers from: US Africa Command, UK Border Force, French Navy, NATO, Italian Navy, Royal Norwegian Navy, Finnish Border Guard, TNO, Damen Shipyards, C-SIGMA, IISS and many more.

 

Benefits of Attending:

  • Extremely focused on new technologies available to OPV using nations across Europe and beyond
  • Expert led panel discussions on international cooperation in operations and the future prospect for modular technologies
  • Briefings from leading Navy and Coast Guard officers from around the world
  • Learn about current and future national OPV platforms and how they enhance maritime security
  • Discover how to optimise business potential by working with these countries
