Adams Communication & Engineering Technology Inc. (ACET) has received a potential 5-year, $37.4 million contract to provide product support for the U.S. Navy’s NAVAIR H-53 Program Office.
The 5-year indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity award requires ACET to perform non-recurring and recurring efforts required to fabricate, assemble, and support prototyping/system integration/installation of Engineering Changes to aircraft designated by the H-53 Program Office, PMA-261. Work performed under the contract will include depot modifications to support fleet requirements on CH-53E, CH-53K®, and MH-53E rotorcraft.
The CH-53E Super Stallion has proven to be extraordinarily relevant to the execution of our national security strategy, Navy and Marine Corps warfighting concepts and the associated need for capable heavy lift. The CH-53K King Stallion™ is the United States Marine Corps’ (USMC) heavy lift replacement for the CH-53E. The most powerful helicopter in the Department of Defense, the CH-53K is a new-build helicopter that will expand the fleet’s ability to move more material, more rapidly throughout the area of responsibility using proven and mature technologies. The MH-53E Sea Dragon will perform the Airborne Mine Countermeasures (AMCM) mission.
ACET aims to utilize its experience in continuing to provide a superior product that translates to PMA-261 and their support of the warfighter.
“We look forward to providing assistance to PMA-261 in performing Depot Level Modifications to the H53 aircraft and to provide common configuration and enhanced capability to the Warfighter” stated Tom Pendergrass, Vice President of Aviation Programs
