The F-35 will be the premier combat aircraft for the coming decades,said Pete Martin, director of defense systems for the Exelis electronic attack & release systems business. Our carriage and release systems provide the aircraft with the high-performance capability it needs to carry its mission payload while maintaining its low-observable profile.

Delivery for the first contract is scheduled to begin in January 2014 and includes systems for 36 aircraft. The second lot is expected to commence in March 2015 with units and additional spares for 37 F-35s. The equipment provided meets all U.S. and international partner requirements.
