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.

The award was given by the U.S. Naval Air Systems Command and is a modification to a prior contract. It provides for repair and support services and fleet support services at customer bases.

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

"This contract represents another vote of confidence in the support and services offered by Rolls-Royce to our US military customers," said Paul Craig, president of Rolls-Royce Defense Services. "We are focused on enabling our customers to keep their aircraft flying and supporting them every day to allow their missions to go forward."

The Rolls-Royce AE 1107C turboshaft engine is part of the AE product family.
