Pratt & Whitney Gets $58M Task Order to Ensure F-35 Engine Reliability

United Technologies Corp.'s Pratt & Whitney subsidiary has landed a potential five-year, $58.4M task order under a U.S. Navy basic ordering agreement to perform non-recurring engineering work on F-35 engines.

Pratt & Whitney will work to identify corrections to reliability, safety and maintainability issues that may arise from fleet utilization as well as continue maturation of the aircraft engine technology and evaluate the life limit of components based on operational use, the Department of Defense said Thursday.

Work will take place in Indiana and Connecticut through December 2024.

The Navy accounts for 36 percent of purchases under the task order while the U.S. Air Force, non-DoD participants and foreign military sales customers account for the remaining 64 percent.
