AAR, a provider of aviation services to commercial and government operators, announced that its AAR Integrated Technologies division has been awarded a firm-fixed-price (FFP) contract from the US Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC) Tinker AFB, Oklahoma, to provide contractor logistical support (CLS) for a fleet of 18 AN/MSN-7 Communication Central Systems.
The support requirements include program management, supply of all the AN/MSN-7 parts, support equipment components, all system materials and consumables as well as replenishment of spare parts.
The effort also requires AAR to provide depot-level maintenance and system level down to Line Replaceable Unit (LRU) level repair as needed, procurement, and installation services on an as required basis.
The firm-fixed-price contract with AAR Integrated Technologies is for five years (base year with four one year renewal options) for an estimated value of $5.1 million.
This multi-year FFP contract ensures the US Air Force’s AN/MSN-7 Communications Central Systems, also known as the Tower Restoral Vehicle (TRV), will be operational and sustained for today’s mission and for years to come.
The TRV is a deployable air traffic control tower used for control of aircraft during taxi, takeoff and landing on and around airfields. The AN/MSN-7 operates as a self-contained system. Its primary mission is to provide rapidly deployable Air Traffic Control (ATC) tower services for USAF deployment operations, such as bare bases and alternate off-base landing areas.
“AAR Integrated Technologies is proud to continue providing contractor logistical support for this strategic US Air Force program and its worldwide mission”, said Jeffery Jackson, Vice President and General Manager, AAR Integrated Technologies. “This multi-year firm-fixed-price contract will ensure that the AN/MSN-7 fleet will maintain a high state of operational readiness along with upgrading to state-of-the-art equipment to meet the US Air Force’s mission requirements.”
