AAI Wins Air Force Contract for Its Joint Service Electronic Combat Systems Tester


Total Potential Contract Value Over Five Years is $67.5 Million

AAI Corporation, an operating unit of Textron Systems, a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, announced its win of a contract for production of the Joint Service Electronic Combat Systems Tester (JSECST) from the U.S. Air Force at Robins Air Force Base in Georgia. This award includes an initial order for 25 systems valued at $7.1 million. During the contract’s base year and four option years, its total potential value is $67.5 million.

JSECST is designed to quickly and accurately test electronic warfare and avionics systems for mission-readiness. The system has been selected for use with several aircraft platforms including the A-10, F-15, F-16, FA-18, E-2, E-6, CV-22, MH-47, and MH-60, as well as the ALQ-131 and ALQ-184 Self Protection Jammer Pods. In fact, the JSECST system is utilized by every branch of the U.S. military and has been designated as the standard flight-line electronic warfare test system of the U.S. Department of Defense.

“Our JSECST program, which has completed 356 system deliveries since 2003, continues to maintain a high level of customer satisfaction. This is reflected in the newest order for 25 additional units,” explains AAI’s vice president of Test Systems, Ed Buffington. “The operational utility offered by AAI’s JSECST system is recognized not only by the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps, but also by our allies in Australia, Canada, the Netherlands, Switzerland and other nations that utilize the systems for flight line and laboratory applications.”
