Textron‘s systems business has received a five-year, $12 million contract from the U.S. Air Force to repair a testing platform for military combat aircraft systems.
The Defense Department said Friday Textron Systems will provide a capability to assess the end-to-end functional status of the internal parts of the Joint Service Electronic Combat System Tester.
JSECST is a Textron-developed tool that conducts diagnostic tests and fault-isolate aircraft electronic warfare, radio frequency, microwave and avionics systems for multiple U.S. military branches and allied countries.
Work under the firm-fixed-price contract will occur in Hunt Valley, Maryland, through July 13, 2028.
In 2018, Textron also performed repair work for the same technology platform under a potential five-year, $10.9 million USAF contract.
