AMI Industries to Produce Ejection Seats for Air Force's B-2 Fleet - top government contractors - best government contracting event

long-range-bomberAMI Industries has received a $14.4 million contract from the U.S. Air Force to produce ejection seats that will work to help B-2 bomber aircraft pilots escape in the event of an emergency.

The United Technology Corp.-owned company will perform work under the B-2 Advanced Conception Ejection Seat II Safety and Sustainability Program through Dec. 30, 2018, the Defense Department said Tuesday.

DoD noted the ejection seat will be fitted with a detachable seatback and bucket structure designed to retain the B-2 escape hatches during maintenance.

The Air Force obligated $5.6 million from its fiscal 2015 research, development, test and evaluation funds at the time of award.

The Northrop Grumman-built B-2 bomber is designed to deploy conventional and nuclear munitions and avoids detection through its reduced infrared, acoustic, electromagnetic, visual and radar signatures.
