The U.S. Navy seeks information on the potential procurement of an existing aircraft system to be used for undergraduate jet training.
The service branch said Thursday in a SAM notice it requires an Undergraduate Jet Training System that will meet the chief of naval air training’s modernization needs.
UJTS may succeed the Navy’s existing T-45 Combined MultiService Pilot and Advanced Strike Fighter Undergraduate Military Flight Officer training systems.
The future training jet will support field carrier landing practice and carrier touch-and-go activities.
Naval Air Systems Command needs a UJTS aircraft that features suitable avionics platforms, cockpit configuration, air vehicle performance and carrier launching and arrest systems.
Interested parties may submit responses through July 13.
