better support the warfighter by increasing
aircraft readiness rates. "

The Beyond Break Fix Strategy
The Defense Sustainment team is part of a
winning venture that began in 2018, when
Collins Aerospace was formed through the
combination of Rockwell Collins and UTC
Aerospace Systems.
Maue explains the program began after a
full review of the challenges customers face.

and returns it to the customer. " It's a very
transactional behavior, not unlike what we
do with our cars, " he said. " But this process

" They take a broken widget off their airplane or their rotorcraft, and there is another widget sitting on the shelf ready to go
