The only non-original
equipment manufacturer to
have successfully converted,
completed entry into service, and
implemented through-life support
for the KC-30A MRTT fleet
orthrop Grumman Integrated Defence
Services provides the Royal Australian Air
Force (RAAF) 86 Wing, 33 Squadron with
through-life support for its fleet of five Airbus A330200s Multi-role Tanker Transport (MRTT) aircraft
located at RAAF Amberley.
The MRTT represents one of the largest and most
complicated aviation programs ever completed in
Australia, and required more than 100,000 man
hours per aircraft to complete—a job that included
the conversion of a green A300-200 airliner to a
KC-30A tanker.
As the only non-original equipment manufacturer
to have successfully converted, completed entry
into service, and implemented through-life support
for the KC-30A MRTT fleet, Northrop Grumman is a
proven partner to provide global integrated services
to the MRTT.
These services include:
• Sustainment (through-life support)
• Entry into service
• Transport aircraft experience
• Configuration management expertise
The RAAF was the launch-customer for the MRTT. In
2007, Northrop Grumman converted four A330-200
airframes to MRTT configuration at the company’s
Brisbane Airport facility. The company was also a key
partner in launching the RAAF’s MRTT capabilities at
Amberley, when 33 Squadron relocated from RAAF
Richmond in 2008.
Northrop Grumman’s motivated and skilled workforce
of more than 100 employees provides scalable and
adaptable support to meet the needs of our customers
and industry partners, and has earned many civil and
military accreditations, and ISO certifications.
