The Hawk IMS will record the fatigue and component life usage for the MoD’s Hawk T Mk 1/1A fleet over the life of this contract. 

The system will manage lifing, configuration control and scheduled maintenance for the aircraft and its components, including the Adour aero engines, and will help the MOD to continue to maintain the critical airworthiness of its Hawk TMk1/1A fleet with an out of service date of 2030.

The two-year contract was awarded following a competition on the UK Government's Digital Marketplace, and provides an opportunity for tlmNexus to develop further its suite of digital applications, created for and used by the MoD and the wider defence and security industry.

The MoD already uses tlmNexus's Queen’s Award-winning Resolve issue management solution under the DE&S Airworthiness Issue Management System contract.

Tony Harris, Commercial Director at tlmNexus, said, "This contract award reinforces our position as a key supplier of digital tools and services to the Defence market, and opens up the opportunity to export similar solutions to Hawk operators around the globe".
