BAE Systems won an $8.4 million contract from the Air Force to provide crashworthy seats for C-130 aircraft.

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.”
