BAE Systems has delivered its 20,000th warning system for the U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force and allied aircraft missile warning systems. This was made possible by the firm teaming up with the Navy NAVAIR program office and prime contractor ATK.
BAE Systems has been working with ATK for the last 13 years, providing sensor components for the AN/AAR-47 missile warning systems.
“BAE Systems work on this critical program has helped to reduce costs, improve efficiency, increase speed to market, and ultimately provide enhanced protection for air crews,” said Scotty Burch, program manager for BAE Systems Austin, Texas, location where the sensors are manufactured. “Our support structure includes the right talent to support the science and production capabilities that it takes to get these defense systems to the air crews.”
The firm has received more than $100 million in orders as the manufacture of the sensor sub-system.
