Astronics’ DME Corporation has won a contract to provide Virtual Instrument Portable Equipment Repair/Test (VIPER/T) systems and Application Program Sets (APSs) to the US Marine Corps Program Manager-Light Armored Vehicles (PM-LAV) Foreign Military Sales office.
The contract was awarded on behalf of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's Ministry of National Guard (MNG), the company announced Thursday.
The test systems are required to support the MNG's fleet of various Light Armored Vehicles.
The contract, valued at $3.6Million and issued by Naval Surface Warfare Center Corona, is for First Article and initial production units of the systems and APSs that will be produced and delivered within a 30-month period of performance.
Procurement of additional production units is expected at a later date.
The VIPER/T MNG systems will feature Astronics' new T940 Digital Subsystem which is a replacement for obsolete, legacy VIPER/T digital test instrumentation.
The Astronics T940 digital solution provides improved system performance, preserves legacy test program sets' investment and offers lower life cycle costs.
Peter J. Gundermann, President and CEO of Astronics said “Our advanced technology provides the flexibility needed for the increasingly complex requirements of electrical and electro-optic circuitry within weapons systems, radar, navigational systems and communication equipment”.
