Honeywell Provides Cost-Saving Logistics Support For USAF F-15 Fleet

  • Honeywell and USAF to partner in support of the F-15 Secondary Power System

Honeywell (NYSE: HON) has been awarded a contract modification from the U.S. Air Force to provide depot maintenance support for the F-15's secondary power system (SPS). Work will be performed under Public-Private Partnership (P3) with the Hill Air Force Base Depot Workforce in Utah through January 2020.

Installed on every F-15 worldwide, the SPS provides two main functions: power for engine starting and power to aircraft accessories once the engines are self-sustaining. The SPS consists of the Jet Fuel Starter (JFS), two hydraulic accumulators, a central gearbox (CGB) and left/right Airframe Mounted Accessory Drives (AMADs).

F-15 Program Benefits

Honeywell's logistics support introduces commercial repair practices at the depot to help reduce repair costs and improve depot productivity on the SPS. Honeywell's performance-based logistics (PBL) programs have historically shown significant reduction in repair costs for both commercial and military systems, enabling:

  • Improved availability and reliability
  • Lower maintenance cost
  • Lower inventory
  • Improved first-pass yield (acceptance test rate) of repaired units
  • Improved OEM technical support at the depot via on-site Field Service Engineering
  • Development of new repairs and sharing of commercial repair practices
  • Improved organic depot repair capability using industry-leading Lean processes to reduce inventory and improve repair turnaround
  • Increased system and component time-on-wing, enabling improved overall platform availability

This contract represents a potential value of up to $355 million through January 2020. The contract amendment, known as Secondary Power Logistics Solution (SPLS)-II, is an extension of the existing Air Force SPLS-I contract signed in 2007 to provide depot-level logistics services and maintenance for SPS components on the B-2 Spirit stealth bomber, C-130 Hercules transport and ground carts.
