WASHINGTON, Oct. 31, 2012

WASHINGTON, Oct. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Honeywell (NYSE: HON) has been
awarded a follow-on five-year contract, worth $181 million, from the NAVSUP
Weapon Systems Support (WSS) to provide logistics support for auxiliary power
units (APUs) for F/A-18 A-G (including F/A-18 Australian F/G models), P-3,
C-2, as well as F/A-18 main fuel controls (MFC) and the P-3 engine-driven
compressor (EDC).


Honeywell, under Public-Private Partnership (P^3 ) with the depot workforce at
the U.S. Navy's Fleet Readiness Center-East at Cherry Point, N.C., and
FRC-Southeast Jacksonville, Fla., has supported multiple products, including
APUs, on Navy applications for NAVSUP WSS via a unique Performance-Based
Logistics (PBL) program since 2000. Since the program's inception, military
operators have enjoyed marked improvement in logistics support including $50
million in  savings through:

  oSustained 97 percent or greater on-time delivery of products to the field
  oSignificantly increased time on wing for all products, with improved
    overall platform availability
  oElimination of intermediate-level aircraft maintenance tasks due to
    improved reliability and service implementation
  oUtilization of highly skilled FRC depot artisans
  oIntroduction of new component repairs and sharing of commercial repair
    practices, thereby improving depot productivity and reducing consumption
    of new material
  oOn-site Honeywell technical and materials management support at depot,
    resulting in improved materials management processes and reduction of
    on-hand Defense Logistics Agency inventory
