  • 07-Nov-2010 08:46 EST

The U.S. Navy awarded Honeywell a one-year, $34 million contract extension for performance-based logistics (PBL) supply support for auxiliary power units (APUs). Honeywell will provide PBL support for the F/A-18, P-3, and C-2 aircraft. PBL encompasses provisioning stock, repair, store, and ship ready-for-issues equipment directly to users upon demand, while meeting and maintaining performance requirements for availability and reliability. This program has experienced high performance in fleet support with APU availability exceeding 95%, up from a preprogram average of 65%.
