A subsidiary of L-3 Communications (NYSE: LLL) has won a potential $302.2 million contract to provide logistics services for the C-12 Huron utility lift aircraft of the U.S. Navy.
L-3 unit Vertex Aerospace will perform post-production, aircraft maintenance and materials delivery for Marine Corps Reserve C-12 as well as Navy TC-12B trainer aircraft, the Defense Department said Wednesday.
Vertex Aerospace will carry out the task in the U.S., Bahrain, Cuba and Japan under the firm-fixed price, indefinite-delivery contract and is scheduled to complete work in July 2021.
The Naval Air Systems Command received five bids for the contract via an electronic request for proposals.
