Paris, Ile-de-France, France, 2021/10/28 - Thales Defense & Security, Inc. today announces a key milestone in the primary sustainment activities for ALFS having serviced more than 1,300 subsystems over the past eight years - ThalesDSI.com. Euronext: HO
For more than 20 years, Thales Defense & Security, Inc. has been the primary sustainment service provider for ALFS demonstrating a continued commitment to onshore maintenance in the United States.
Thales Defense & Security, Inc. is increasing its U.S. based sustainment capabilities by bringing additional repair operations onshore to further increase the throughput of repairs already performed in the U.S. These new processes bring a majority of the repairs closer to the Navy providing shorter turnaround times that enhance readiness. Additionally, this will enable the development of new skills and create more U.S. jobs.
This further supports the recent contract Thales signed with Lockheed Martin RMS for additional ALFS system deliveries and for continued sustainment support under Seahawk Performance-Based Logistics (PBL).
Mike Sheehan, President & CEO, Thales Defense & Security, Inc., said “we are very proud to expand our domestic U.S. support to the U.S. Navy for the ALFS systems. It is a decisive advantage to be closer to our customer and reaffirm our commitments to providing U.S. based capabilities.”
Gwendoline Blandin-Roger, Managing Director Underwater systems, said “thanks to this new achievement, Thales strongly raises its ability to support the U.S. Navy from the USA whilst providing the best of breed Anti-Submarine Warfare operational systems and technology for the benefit of the U.S. Navy.”
