S&K Logistics Services awarded technical data contracts to support the Republic of South Korea Air Force and Royal Saudi Air Force
St. Ignatius, Montana – April, 2020 – S&K Logistics Services, LLC (SKLS) has been awarded two contracts with the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center F-15 Division at Robins Air Force Base with a combined value of $30 million. The first contract encompasses the sustainment of Country Standard Technical Orders (CSTO) and engineering data for the Republic of South Korea Air Force F-15K Slam Eagle aircraft and associated support equipment. The second contract is for similar sustainment of CSTO’s and commodity manuals for the Royal Saudi Air Force F-15 weapon system and associated support equipment. Work will begin in early April 2020 with employees based at SKLS offices in Warner Robins, Georgia.
SKLS is a member of the S&K Technologies, Inc. Family of Companies, which for over 15 years has supported foreign allies like Saudi Arabia on multiple technical order contracts. This will be the first time the company has supported the Republic of South Korea with CSTO sustainment.
Aircraft technical orders and data are like repair manuals for cars. The schematics and diagrams show F-15 weapon systems broken down to their mechanical, hydraulic, avionic, and electrical components. Air Force units worldwide have an ongoing need for technical data to sustain their weapons systems. The ability to maintain technical manuals at a constant and rapid rate ensures effective maintenance of their fleet.
For this contract, SKLS Technical Writers and Editors will provide:
- Content Creation and Editorial Services
- Technical Content and Flight Manual Management
- Technical Order Library Management
- Cloud-based Virtual Access with Print-on-Demand Capability
- Direct and Continuous Customer Support
“SKLS has a distinguished history and well-earned reputation for quality technical order support,” said John McEntee, SKLS Division Director. “Our team is highly skilled with the various F-15 configurations these countries use. Everyone has years of F-15 systems knowledge, and that expertise is applied to every technical publication they develop, edit, and convert for our customers.”
The S&K Technologies, Inc. Family of Companies is owned by the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes (CSKT) with headquarters in St. Ignatius, Montana. The company has 10 subsidiaries at operational sites nationwide and in Saudi Arabia. Contract awards like this provide meaningful economic dividends to the 8,000-plus shareholders of the tribal community, supporting programs involving cultural perpetuation, language revitalization, services for elders, and other social investments.
