Life Cycle Sustainment Plan


Raider has developed and integrated sustainment into our system design, development, testing, deployment. Our vision of sustainment is supporting the product in the field for the warfighter over the life of the product.

Raider is in the production cycle but we recognized early in development the importance of sustainment. It began with the selection of the COTS manufacturer which was a key part of selecting the COTS product that would become a Raider. The backbone of our “sustainment” program is supported by the manufcturer with a guarantees parts for the COTS motor will be available at a minimum of five years after completion of manufacturing.

Raider has initiated services with training professionals making available individual and digital training support with full ce1tifications for user and maintenance personnel who pass our courses.

Raider implemented a mobile service center for service and on site training. Providing contractor logistics support to achieve the sustainment committed to Key Performance Parameter (KPP) and Key System Attributes (KSAs) sustainment.

Raider works with our customers to make certain their requirements for sustainment is met. Raider interfaces with our COTS engine provider insuring the military has total worldwide support with parts, manuals and training for optimal sustainment of Raider outboards.
