Cobham receives $51m in orders for F-35 Lightning II

Cobham recently received a series of orders from BAE Systems for microelectronic products totaling approximately $51M for the F-35 Lightning II platform. The work will be performed by Cobham Microelectronic Solutions, a business unit of the Cobham Advanced Electronics Solutions sector.

Cobham's offering for the recent orders on the F-35 platform includes microelectronic components and integrated microelectronic assemblies for radar and electronic warfare (EW). 

“These awards are the result of our leading edge technology and dedicated effort to successfully execute this program while simultaneously driving affordability,” said Jill Kale, President of Cobham Advanced Electronic Solutions. “The F-35 is a critical and enduring platform for the U.S. military and other allied nations. We are proud to support F-35 customers around the world with our innovative and cost effective solutions that add to the capabilities of this revolutionary aircraft. Our industry leading filtering capability, which enables greater system sensitivity, and our solid program execution have enabled the continued success of this program.”

More than 100 Cobham components are onboard every F-35 Lightning II, including microelectronic components, microwave systems, motion control solutions for the Electro-optical Targeting System (EOTS) gimbal, communications cryptography chips, pilot survival products and aerial refueling equipment.

Cobham Microelectronic Solutions was selected by Lockheed Martin for a Cockpit Demonstrator event at the San Diego facility on Aug. 25, so the hundreds of employees who work on the components can see how their hard work and dedication contributes to the capabilities of the F-35.
