Vertex Aerospace was awarded a contract seat with the U.S. Navy’s Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD) in Patuxent River, Maryland.
The Full Rate Production (FRP) Multiple Award Contract (MAC) will provide a broad spectrum of supplies and services to improve the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR)’s fleet readiness.
Vertex’s Aircraft Integration & Sustainment (AIS) division, based in Crestview, Florida, was awarded a seat on the multiple award indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract under Lot II status. Lot II vendors have the opportunity for full and open competition of all Aircraft Components, Systems, Kit Production, and Installation task orders.
“We are honored to have this opportunity to continue our support of the front-line warfighter by delivering quality services while ensuring speed to the fleet,” said Ed Boyington, CEO and President of Vertex Aerospace. “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 life-cycle sustainment company.”
The AIS division is co-located with the Bob Sikes Airport, which boasts a fully instrumental 8,000-foot runway that provides easy facility access for all sized aircraft. The site houses multiple high bay hangars for both fixed and rotary wing aircraft modifications and is complimented by over 500,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing, production, and assembly buildings servicing major OEMs.
The not-to-exceed ceiling for all contracts is $7,143,500,000, the maximum dollar ceiling for each task order is $750M, and work is expected to be complete by April 2031. No funds are being obligated at the time of award but will be awarded with individual orders as they are issued.
