Vertex Aerospace has secured a position on the US Naval Air Warfare Center, Aircraft Division (NAWCAD) multiple award contract (MAC).

The contract will see the delivery of a range of supplies and services aimed at enhancing the Naval Air Systems Command’s fleet readiness in the Patuxent River, Maryland.

Under Lot II status, Florida-based Vertex’s Aircraft Integration & Sustainment (AIS) division secured a seat under the full-rate production (FRP) indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract. 

Work under each $750m task order is expected to conclude by April 2031. The maximum ceiling value for all contracts is $7.14bn.

Funds will be awarded to individual orders when being issued.

The AIS site is co-located at the Bob Sikes Airport, which provides an 8,000ft runway for all aircraft sizes.

Vertex Aerospace CEO and president Ed Boyington said: “We are honoured to have this opportunity to continue our support of the front-line warfighter by delivering quality services while ensuring speed to the fleet.

“The combination of our CMMARS and FRP MAC contract seats will allow us to display our full range of capabilities to solve every aircraft modification, systems integration, and maintenance challenge as a full lifecycle sustainment company.”

Earlier this month, BAE Systems selected Vertex Aerospace to support the US Navy’s Large Aircraft Infrared Countermeasures (LAIRCM) contract.
