INDIANAPOLIS (Inside Indiana Business) – Indianapolis-based Rolls-Royce Corp. has been awarded two contracts from the U.S. Department of Defense. The work has been contracted by outlets based in Georgia and Florida. 

The company has been awarded a $84 million contract for propulsion support on the C-130J Aircraft, in support of the French Air Force.  The DoD says the contract includes program management, in-country field support representatives, replenishment of spares, MissionCare service, travel and per diem, as well as organizational and commercial depot level maintenance of the propulsion systems.
