L3Harris Technologies has received a five-year, up to $668 million IDIQ C-130 Maintenance contract from the USAF for C-130 fleet readiness.

“L3Harris’ support will alleviate capacity constraints for the U.S. Air Force’s Air Logistics complexes,” said Sean Stackley, President, Integrated Mission Systems, L3Harris. “Our extensive C-130 experience, skilled personnel and expansive hangar capacity provide a ready solution to assist the Air Force in maintaining its fleet readiness.”

The sustainment on USAF C-130H and J-model aircraft as part of the C-130 Maintenance Contract will be performed by L3Harris at its 1.1 million-square-foot aircraft modification center in Waco, Texas.

The center supports the Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve C-130H aircraft fleet under the U.S. Air Force Avionics Modernization Programme Increment 2.

The center also services the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, space, commercial and international operators.

A full range of missionization and aircraft services, including conducting parallel avionics modernization and programmed depot-level maintenance efforts for reduced aircraft downtime are also supported at the center.

The first of 308 C-130Hs with the more powerful Allison T56-A-15 turboprop engines were introduced into the USAF in June 1974.

Nearly identical to the C-130E externally, the new engine brought major performance improvements to the aircraft.

The C-130J, which is the latest C-130 to be produced, entered USAF service in February 1999.
