RESTON, Va., Jan. 7 (UPI) -- Rolls-Royce has received a $52.2 million contract to support AE 1107C engines for V-22 aircraft operated by the U.S. Marine Corps and Air Force.

Work under the award will be performed at Rolls-Royce facilities in Indianapolis, and Oakland, Calif., as well as at military facilities.
