IDEX: BAE Systems continues to provide critical F-16 support equipment to Oman

Posted 18 February 2013 · Add Comment

BAE Systems received a contract valued at nearly $23 million 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.  

“We are pleased that Oman has again called upon BAE Systems to deliver the systems and services they require to affordably achieve their mission readiness,” said Carl Huncharek, programme director for BAE Systems. “Our deep understanding and single point of contact for their sustainment equipment needs is why we continue to see such strong repeat business.”   

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 percent on time delivery record and a 99 percent 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.
