AH-64D Apaches(click for full view) Boeing in Mesa, AZ receives a $60 million firm-fixed-price, cost-plus-fixed-fee contract modification, which will finance efforts to improve the attack helicopters’ existing reliability rate, ease of maintenance, and sustainability at home and in theater. Ongoing efforts of this sort aren’t unusual for military platforms, and platforms that are a prominent part of the force are more attractive because they’re able to multiply the benefits over a larger number of machines. Work will be performed in Mesa, AZ, with an estimated completion date of March 15/12. The bid was solicited through the Internet, with one bid received by the Army’s Aviation Applied Technology Directorate in Fort Eustis, VA (W911W6-07-D-0002).
