Pratt & Whitney, an RTX business, was awarded a TF33 engine sustainment contract valued up to $870 million by the Defense Logistics Agency.

The TF33 engine powers a range of aircraft, including Boeing's B-52 Stratofortress and E-3 Sentry.

This agreement is a culmination of the Defense Logistics Agency's decades-long partnership with the 448th Supply Chain Management Wing, Tinker Air Force Base, Okla., and Pratt & Whitney to establish a holistic sustainment solution. This first-of-its-kind approach will reduce obsolescence, supporting the U.S. Air Force's wartime readiness, Raytheon said in a statement.

Under this contract, Pratt & Whitney will provide comprehensive engine sustainment services for a global fleet of nearly 1,000 engines over a six-year period, with an option of extending for another four years. Services under this contract include maintenance, spare parts, program management, field service, repairs and engineering support.

Sustainment work will run through April 2034 at Tinker Air Force Base, Okla., additional U.S. Air Force locations, and Pratt & Whitney's Southern Logistics Center located in Atlanta, Ga.
