Textron Awarded $44M to Upgrade Joint Service Electronic Combat Systems Tester; Steve Mensh Comments


TextronTextron (NYSE: TXT) subsidiary Textron Systems will recondition the U.S. military’s electronic combat systems tester under a four-year, $43.6 million contract.

The company will update a majority of the 500 Joint Service Electronic Combat Systems Testers currently in use by military forces in the U.S. and overseas, Textron Systems said Tuesday.

“The JSECST system has been a workhorse for the U.S. Department of Defense and so many of our allies for years… giving aircrews the confidence they need to execute their missions, ” said Steve Mensh, senior vice president and general manager for electronic systems at Textron Systems.

The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract includes options to purchase additional units of the AN/USM-670A JSECST.

Textron says the upgrade kit aims to add 20 years to a tester’s service life while providing added functions to evaluate the performance of newer avionics systems.
