Boeing [NYSE:BA] and DynCorp Technical Services LLC, a Computer Sciences Corporation [NYSE:CSC] company, have created Aviation Technical Services LLC, a wholly and jointly owned company to offer support services to the U.S. military.
The new company, based in Fort Worth, Texas, will compete to win the U.S. Army Fort Rucker aviation maintenance contract and the T-45TS Contractor Logistics Support program for the U.S. Navy.
"Aviation Technical Services combines the best industry has to offer in providing high-quality, affordable and responsive support to our military customers," said David Spong, vice president and general manager of Boeing Aerospace Support, a business unit of Boeing Integrated Defense Systems. "We have merged the technical excellence and integrated support expertise of Boeing with logistics-service experience and cost affordability of CSC's DynCorp. The result represents best value to our customers through world-class support services."
"Each of our companies brings key capabilities to our customers' needs," said Ben Medley, president of CSC's DynCorp Technical Services. "Aviation Technical Services can draw on DynCorp's capabilities to meet surge support requirements, and reach into Boeing for vital technical assistance and support."
The follow-on contracts for both the Fort Rucker aviation maintenance and the T-45TS Contractor Logistics Support programs are expected to be awarded this summer. CSC's DynCorp is the incumbent contractor for the Fort Rucker program, which includes more than 3,100 skilled people in support of the Boeing-built AH-64 Apache and CH-47 Chinook as well as other Army rotorcraft.
Boeing is the incumbent contractor for the T-45TS Contractor Logistics Support program, which includes about 700 people at the Naval Air Stations at Kingsville, Texas, and Meridian, Miss.
