L3 MAS has announced that Boeing has exercised a five-year contract option for L3 MAS to continue providing support and test equipment in-service support (ISS) services, logistics support analysis (LSA) and electronic publication management services on the Department of National Defence’s (DND’s) CH-147F Chinook fleet. The work will be carried out at the customer’s operating base in Petawawa, Ontario, and in L3 MAS’ facilities in Mirabel, Quebec, and Halifax, Nova Scotia.
“We are honored to renew these contracts with our partner, Boeing,” said Ugo Paniconi, acting vice president and general manager of L3 MAS. “We understand the importance of this strategic fleet, and we are committed to providing DND with best-value sustainment support solutions for these helicopters. This option award is a testament to L3 MAS’ commitment to customer focus and performance excellence in providing these services over the past five years.”
The CH-147F Chinook is an advanced, multi-mission, medium- to heavy-lift helicopter. It provides logistical and mobility support to the Canadian Army and the Special Operations Forces and is used to transport equipment and personnel during domestic or deployed operations. It has also been used to support other government departments, law enforcement agencies and civil authorities.
Through its industrial engagement programs, Boeing is able to leverage the expertise of Canadian companies of all sizes, and from all regions, in support of both its commercial and defense platforms, leading to greater economic benefit in Canada and opportunities for future collaboration across the enterprise.
