ITT - Turkish Air Force F-16 Contract


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
ITT Corporation
: 02 March, 2009  (Company News)
ITT has won a $99.8 million competitive award to supply Advanced Electronic Warfare systems to support 30 new F-16 Block 50M aircraft being procured by the Turkish Air Force under the Peace Onyx IV Foreign Military Sales program.
Under a contract from Warner Robins Air Logistics Center, Robins Air Force Base, Ga., ITT's Electronic Systems, Integrated Electronic warfare Systems business will provide the Advanced Integrated Defensive Electronic warfare Systems (AIDEWS) and countermeasures dispensing systems with the aircraft. System deliveries on the contract will begin in 2010.

Under the contract, ITT will modify the system for Turkish Air Force mission systems. Associated spares, support equipment, training, engineering services, and data are also being acquired under this contract.

ITT Electronic Systems President Chris Bernhardt said, 'Selection of AIDEWS by this highly respected NATO ally is very important to us. In the highly competitive F-16 international Electronic warfare market, this award attests to the system's maturity and operational excellence.'

This is the sixth international sale of ITT's AIDEWS. In addition to an international business jet application, ITT is producing these systems for F-16 aircraft being delivered to Poland, Oman, Chile and Pakistan.

AIDEWS, an integrated Radar Warning and Jamming countermeasure system, provides fighter pilots with superior situation awareness and protection against radar based threat systems, including modern surface-to-air and air-to-air weapon systems. AIDEWS is built upon the proven ALQ-211 family of Electronic warfare systems now being used to support numerous U.S. and allied defense customers.

ITT Electronic Systems is one of the world's leading suppliers of Electronic warfare technology for mission success and survivability. Key technologies include integrated EW systems for self-protection, reconnaissance and surveillance, force protection, mine defense, naval command/sonar applications, and submarine communication and tracking. In addition, Electronic Systems produces aircraft armament suspension/release equipment; electronic weapons interface systems, and advanced composite structures and subsystems, as well as Gilfillan precision landing and air traffic systems.
