Sypris producing F-16 electronic assemblies

  • 16-Mar-2010 05:12 EDT

The F-16, introduced in 1978, is a lightweight, multirole fighter aircraft developed for the U.S. Air Force by Lockheed Martin.

Honeywell International Inc., Defense and Space Electronic Systems located in Albuquerque, NM, awarded Sypris Electronics an estimated $6 million follow-on order to produce electronic assemblies for the F-16 Digital Flight Control Computer (DFLCC). The flight-critical DFLCC is a quadruple-redundant computer at the core of the fly-by-wire flight control system for the F-16. The DFLCC combines pilot inputs along with aircraft motion and flight conditions to command position of the flight control surfaces for increased aircraft performance and survivability. This award will support the Ogden Air Logistics Center at Hill Air Force base located in northern Utah and its initiative of maintaining the F-16 fleet.
