The Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) recently awarded Boeing its fourth Performance Based Logistics (PBL) contract to support Singapore’s fleet of F-15SG aircraft.
Under the 10-year, Direct Commercial Sale contract, Boeing will work closely with the RSAF to deliver customized support services to sustain the F-15SG for the next decade. In addition, Boeing’s field service representatives located with the customer will continue to provide on-site technical support, the company said in a release.
PBL contracts expand on traditional transactional models – paying for parts and services as needed – and instead allow for customized, data-driven support based on desired performance outcomes, such as required mission readiness rates or percentage of parts supply, to meet customer requirements. These solutions enable increased readiness rates, maintenance efficiencies and lower costs throughout the platform life cycle.
Singapore had ordered 24 F-15SGs to replace its fleet of A-4 Super Skyhawks over a decade ago. The F-15SG's integrated sensor suite, which includes an Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar and a third-generation SNIPER targeting pod, provides the RSAF with long-range air-to-air and air-to-ground capabilities
