A joint venture between Boeing and Textron’s Bell Helicopter subsidiary received a two-year, $42.2M U.S. Navy delivery order to provide software sustainment services for the V-22 Osprey tiltrotors used by the Air Force and Marine Corps.
Bell Boeing Joint Project Office will perform technical and engineering work on aircraft flight control and avionics systems, the Department of Defense said Thursday.
The Naval Air Systems Command will obligate $38.5M in fiscal 2019 Navy and Air Force funds at the time of award.
Ninety-three percent of work will take place in Ridley Park, Penn., and the remaining 7 percent will occur in Fort Worth, Texas.
The Pentagon expects the company to fulfill the order by June 2021.
