General Atomics Evaluates Arresting Gear Performance on Turboprop Aircraft - top government contractors - best government contracting eventGeneral Atomics“™ electromagnetic systems business has completed an assessment of its Advanced Arresting Gear“™s performance on turboprop aircraft at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in New Jersey.

The company said Tuesday AAG performed over 800 roll-in and fly-in aircraft arrestments for the C-2A Greyhound, E-2C+ Hawkeye and E-2D Advanced Hawkeye planes.

The arresting system also completed 400 at-sea F/A-18 E/F Super Hornet recoveries during sea trials and shakedown aboard the USS Gerald R. Ford aircraft carrier.

Rolf Ziesing, vice president of programs at General Atomics Electromagnetic Systems, said the turboprop arrestments at the Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst“™s Runway Arrested Landing Site allows the U.S. Navy to proceed with recovery testing for the aircraft aboard CVN 78.

GA-EMS is on track to operate AAG when CVN 78 completes post shakedown availability in 2019, according to Dean Key, senior director of electromagnetic aircraft launch system/AAG program at GA-EMS.

The company is working with the Naval Air Systems Command to support the EMALS/AAG programs, as well as augment PSA capabilities.
