AAR selected by Northrop Grumman to support Japan E-2C Hawkeye platform

AAR has entered into an exclusive multimillion-dollar five-year agreement with Northrop Grumman to supply specific airframe parts and accessories for the E-2C Hawkeye aircraft operated by the Japan Air Self Defense Force.

The contract will be managed by AARís Defense Systems and Logistics Distribution division, which will sell directly to Sumitomo Corporation, one of the parts trading companies used by the Japan Ministry of Defense to procure parts and accessories. AAR will stock inventory to increase JASDFís E-2C Hawkeye readiness level.

Providing in-stock inventory reduces lead times and helps increase the sustainability of the JASDF E-2C aircraft platform,î said John Holmes, Aviation Services Group Vice President Aviation Supply Chain for AAR. ìThis is critically important as the Japanese Ministry of Defense increases the use of the E-2C to perform surveillance and reconnaissance over its waterways and in its skies.

This agreement expands the relationship between AAR and Sumitomo, which began in 2012. At that time, AAR was awarded a five-year contract by Pratt & Whitney AeroPower to become the exclusive supplier of Auxiliary Power Unit and Jet Fuel Starter parts and accessories to the JMOD.

ìBuilding upon our role as a JMOD supplier reinforces our presence in Japan and our position as a global market leader in parts supply chain and distribution,î Holmes said.
