The United States Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) has awarded a project task assignment for the Teaming-Enabled Architectures for Manned-Unmanned Systems (TEAMS) prototype program to GE Aviation.
The project is under the authority of the Base Vertical Lift Consortium Project.
“The TEAMS program is an opportunity for GE to work closely with AFRL and our industry partners to prototype architectures that will enable the next generation of Manned-Unmanned Teaming capabilities,” said John Kormash, director of Advanced & Special Programs for GE Aviation.
TEAMS is an architectural modeling and prototyping effort under the AFRL’s Flexible, Assured Manned-Unmanned Systems (FAMUS) program. FAMUS intends to lay a technical foundation for an operational reality where a heterogeneous, multi-man, multi-machine team-of-teams can perform a range of missions in a flexible and assured manner.
By prototyping an iterative, architecture-centric, and model-based approach under TEAMS, FAMUS intends to define the architectures, processes, methods, tools, and environments necessary to rapidly mature and affordably transition increasingly complex manned-unmanned teaming technologies.
Also contributing to this prototype are team members Modern Technology Solutions (MTSI), Scientific Systems Company (SSCI), Dependable Computing and GE Global Research Center (GRC). The contract period of performance is 24 months.
General Electric is awarded $70 million modification contract for the procurement of 16 F414-GE-400 install engines for the F/A-18 aircraft for the United States Navy. Work is expected to be completed by December 2020, the US department of defense said in a statement Friday
General Electric Aviation has won a $11 million contract for engineering and engine system improvement in support of the F414 engine component improvement program. The F414 is an afterburning turbofan engine in the 22,000-pound (98 kN) thrust class for use in the Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornet
General Electric has been awarded an $11million contract for engineering and technical services in support of the following engines: F-16 F110-GE-100, A-10 TF-34, KC-135 F-108, B-1 F118, E-6B F108, T700-401C, J85-21B, F110, F16 C/D, F/A-18 and F110-GE-129. This contract provides for on-site proficiency training and advice to elevate the technical skill and abilities of personnel responsible for the operation and maintenance of the GE Aviation equipment/systems to the level of self-sufficiency, the US Department of Defense said in a statement Tuesday
