Boeing has submitted a comprehensive proposal for the US Special Operations Command's $5bn special operations forces support activity (SOFSA) contract.

Boeing and teammate CSC have proposed to provide advance innovation and leadership in manufacturing; maintenance and repairs; supply chain and asset management; and information technology to improve processes and systems within SOFSA.

President of global services & support for Boeing, Dennis Muilenburg said that the team will bring together tremendous capabilities to support the SOF warfighter.

"Our proven success in improving processes in both the technical and human aspects of sustaining customer readiness is something no other team can match," said Muilenburg.

SOFSA is a ten-year programme that will provide comprehensive logistics support services to ensure that the readiness requirements of the SOF warfighter are met. It includes support of virtually any product or item unique to the SOF.

Boeing already provides USSOCOM for the majority of its rotary-wing fleet, including the MH-47G Chinook, AH-6 Little Bird, CV-22 Osprey and A160 Hummingbird platforms.
