Sikorsky and Lockheed Martin aftermarket support organizations have combined to increase aircraft mission readiness
Through the aftermarket support of Sikorsky Aerospace Services and Lockheed Martin Mission Systems & Sensors, the H-60 Tip-to-Tail Program – the U.S. Navy’s largest naval rotary wing PBL program – has seen significant benefits from working with MHSCo:
- Up to 50% increase in parts availability rates
- Contributed to a 30% improvement to non-mission capable supply (NMCS) times
- Significant reduction in backorders
- Delivery performance at 98%
- Repair, overhaul, modification and procurement or attrition of spares, packaging, handling, storage, configuration, obsolescence, and reliability management and sustainment of 1,266 H-60 series airframe and avionics components
“MHSCo’s H-60 Tip-to-Tail is recognized as one of the U.S. Navy’s most successful PBL programs. By meeting the Navy’s rigorous on-time parts delivery requirements, [the program] has set a high standard of support that has had a very positive effect on H-60 flight operations.”
– Rear Admiral Raymond Berube, Then Commander, Naval Inventory Control Point
In December 2011, MHSCo received the Defense Logistics 2011 Award for Best PBL Implementation based on the outstanding performance of the entire Navy H-60 Tip-to-Tail PBL team. This annual award recognizes excellence in the defense logistics community. The panel of judges included logistics leadership from the Pentagon as well as the individual armed services. At a time when improved affordability and enhanced performance are paramount concerns, this award recognizes MHSCo for implementing the H-60 Tip-to-Tail PBL to deliver on those priorities.
The T2T PBL was a Gold Medalist for the 2011 Philadelphia Federal Executive Board Excellence in Government Award, and a finalist for the 2011 Aviation Week Program Excellence Award and the 2011 Department of Defense PBL Award.
MHSCo is currently nominated for numerous other awards, including the David Packard Excellence in Acquisition Award and Excellence in Performance Based Logistics by the SECDEF PBL Awards Program.
