The F-35 Lightning II, a supersonic, multirole, fifth-generation stealth fighter, is being equipped with assemblies for the communications, navigation, and identification avionics system by Sypris Electronics.

Northrop Grumman Information Systems awarded Sypris Electronics LLC follow-on orders to provide electronic assemblies for the communications, navigation, and identification (CNI) avionics system on Lockheed Martin's F-35 Lightning II program. Sypris Electronics is providing assemblies for the CNI Avionics Interface Controller (two per aircraft) and CNI Processor (five per aircraft), each of which serve as critical communications modules in the avionics suite. The Northrop Grumman avionics system is built on software-defined radio technology that provides F-35 pilots with the consolidated capabilities of more than 40 avionics subsystems.
