MIRABEL, Quebec–(BUSINESS WIRE)–April 21, 2022–
L3Harris Technologies (NYSE:LHX) has been awarded a 4-year, US$482 million performance-based contract (PBC) extension, with option years, to continue in-service support of the CF-18 Hornet fighter from the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) fleet of aircraft until its retirement which is currently estimated at 2032.

With this contract extension, L3Harris will continue to provide fleet and program management, maintenance, engineering, material management, electronic publications, integrated logistics support, data management and operational software support. Work will be performed at L3Harris’ Mirabel facility, as well as Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Cold Lake and CFB Bagotville.

This latest performance-based contract will provide flexibility, economic benefits and value to Canada’s Sustainment Initiative.
