Boeing Wins $85M Contract for Continued Support of AESA Radar System; Julie Praiss Comments - top government contractors - best government contracting eventBoeing has won an $85 million Performance-Based Logistics contract to continue its support of the U.S. Air Force F-15 mechanically scanned and Active Electronically Scanned Array radar system, replacing three support contracts with one overarching agreement.

Under this F-15 PBL contract, a group of logistics experts who are active-duty civilians deployable worldwide compose a Boeing Contractor Logistics Support team that will be integrated into the assigned Air Force wing.

Julie Praiss, vice president of Boeing Tactical Aircraft & Weapons Support, said the new PBL contract brings the government and the industry together to provide “the best-value sustainment solution for the warfighter and the taxpayer.“

U.S. Air Force Col. Brian Beers, commander of the 18th Maintenance Group, said Boeing works to provide “over-and-above support to ensure mission success, combat-ready aircraft and combat-ready airmen.“

Under a PBL contract, contractors are required to meet a set level of readiness to meet the customer's required level of support and deliver system and parts as needed. This agreement intends to reduce life-cycle costs and increase mission capability rates.

The AESA radar system allows warfighters to track multiple targets in multiple directions, increasing situational awareness and survivability.
