- PRESS RELEASE
BAE Systems received a contract valued at nearly $23m to provide F-16 support equipment, test systems, and spares to the government of Oman. The contract continues the company's strong global position to deliver the right systems and expertise to support F-16 aircraft operated by U.S. allies.
BAE Systems has delivered more than 25,000 support equipment and test systems to more than 24 countries worldwide. The company has done so with a 98% on time delivery record and a 99% customer return rate for the service, training, repair, and thru-life support of the systems provided. BAE Systems will develop and deliver these items from its Fort Worth, Texas facility by early 2014.
BAE Systems is also a leading systems integration provider for F-16 avionics upgrades. In August, South Korea selected BAE Systems as the sole source contractor to upgrade its F-16 fleet. Additionally, the company supports the U.S. Air National Guard's upgraded F-16s and the Turkish Air Force's upgraded F-16s. BAE Systems' upgrade solution includes the Commercial Fire Control Computer, which is currently the highest throughput and most supportable mission computer in any F-16.
