BAE Systems won an $8.4 million contract from the Air Force to provide crashworthy seats for C-130 aircraft.
According to the firm, “the specially designed seats will help protect crewmembers in the event of mishaps or hard landings.”
The firm will handle development, testing, and installation of the seat systems to help increase crewmember safety.
“This important readiness and sustainment contract will provide a cost-effective, rapidly deployable solution for the warfighter, ” said Gordon Eldridge, vice president and general manager of Aerospace Solutions at BAE Systems Support Solutions. “This win also builds on our support to the Tactical Airlift Division, a key customer at the Air Logistics Center.”
