Cobham recently received a series of orders from BAE Systems for microelectronic products totaling approximately $51M for the F-35 Lightning II platform.
The work will be performed by Cobham Microelectronic Solutions,
a business unit of the Cobham Advanced Electronic Solutions
Cobham's offering for the recent orders on the F-35 platform
includes microelectronic components and integrated microelectronic
assemblies for radar and electronic warfare (EW).
"These awards are the result of our leading edge technology and
dedicated effort to successfully execute this program while
simultaneously driving affordability," said Jill Kale, President of
Cobham Advanced Electronic Solutions. "The F-35 is a critical and
enduring platform for the U.S. military and other allied
nations. We are proud to support F-35 customers around the
world with our innovative and cost effective solutions that add to
the capabilities of this revolutionary aircraft. Our industry
leading filtering capability, which enables greater system
sensitivity, and our solid program execution have enabled the
continued success of this program."
More than 100 Cobham components are onboard every F-35 Lightning
II, including microelectronic components, microwave systems, motion
control solutions for the Electro-optical Targeting System (EOTS)
gimbal, communications cryptography chips, pilot survival products
and aerial refueling equipment.
Cobham Microelectronic Solutions was selected by Lockheed Martin
for a Cockpit Demonstrator event at the San Diego facility on Aug.
25, so the hundreds of employees who work on the components can see
how their hard work and dedication contributes to the capabilities
of the F-35.
