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.
