    Rolls Royce Corp. will perform up to $4.7 million worth of work at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar for its other business — aircraft engines.

    The company will provide engineering and logistics support for the engines on the KC-130J aircraft flown by the U.S. Marine Corps under a recently awarded U.S. Navy contract.

    The deal is for five years.

    The military has several uses for Lockheed Martin Corp.’s C-130 Hercules transport aircraft, which dates from the 1950s. The U.S. Marine Corps uses its KC-130J aircraft as aerial refueling tankers.

    The propeller-driven aircraft has four Rolls Royce AE2100D3 engines.

    The $4.7 million makes up 6 percent of a wider, $78.7 million contract. The bulk of the work — 75 percent — will be done at Rolls Royce’s facility in Indianapolis.

    Rolls Royce must now wait for the Navy to issue task orders under the indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity deal.

    The Naval Air Systems Command at Patuxent River, Md. awarded the contract, which the Pentagon announced on May 9. The contract was not competitively procured.
