Erickson Incorporated has won the US Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWC-AD) full-rate production (FRP) multiple-award contract.

The indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract has an estimated aggregate ceiling value of $7.14bn.

It is for three distinct FRP lots that will support a range of requirements and involves established vendor pools.

The companies will have to compete for individual orders as per the lots.

Lot I, II and III are for FRP of mission system avionics, other aircraft components, production, and installation of modification kits.

Erickson will perform FRP quantities of mechanical and electrical components, mission systems and components, kits, obsolescence engineering services, ancillary maintenance services, systems or aircraft modifications.

Work is expected to completed by April 2031.

Erickson’s Defense MRO business supports the H-53E platform for the US Navy and US Marine Corps (USMC) Aviation.

Since 2015, it has been providing refurbishments and planned maintenance.

Erickson CEO Doug Kitani said: “I am proud of our Defense & National Security team building on the remarkable legacy of our S-64 Air Crane franchise and expeditionary air operations to develop a compelling defence MRO business with a reputation of delivering exceptional, high quality solutions to our Department of Defense aviation customers.”

In April this year, the NAWCAD Lakehurst in New Jersey used an additive manufacturing process to make face shields.
