Rolls-Royce Corp. in Indianapolis will receive $22.8 million to produce spare engines and engine modules for the U.S. Navy's E-2D Advanced Hawkeye aircraft fleet. Production will take place in Indianapolis and is expected to be complete by next September. Rolls-Royce will also perform a portion of the work for Connecticut-based United Technologies Corp.'s (NYSE: UTX) $21 million contract boost, which calls for production of engines for the U.S. Marine Corps' F-35B Lightening II aircraft.
