Power systems developer Rolls-Royce has won a contract extension with the US Department of Defense to provide support for the F405 (Adour) engines that power the US Navy's T-45 training aircraft.

The $103.3m Missioncare contract is the result of the US Department of Defense exercising the fourth option year on a contract that was signed in 2008.

Rolls-Royce will provide inventory control, as well as integrated logistics support and required engineering elements for both the F405 engine and the aircraft gas turbine starting system.

This contract provides comprehensive propulsion services to more than 200 aircraft, operating at four main naval air stations: Kingsville, Texas; Meridian, Mississippi; Pensacola, Florida; and Patuxent River, Maryland.
