Upgrade Programs

Today, aircraft are being recapitalized and upgraded with the latest instrumentation and avionics. Recapitalization implies refurbishment to near zero-time/zero-mile maintenance. This upgrade process results in an improved model with enhanced war-fighting capabilities.

We have the ability to:

  • Design, develop, and produce your upgrade or modification project.
  • Integrate mechanical and electronic elements.
  • Integrate fully fabricated, assembled and tested packages; ready for integration into customer’s end systems.
