Sypris wins orders for assemblies used in JSF avionics suite

Sypris Electronics LLC, a subsidiary of Sypris Solutions, Inc., announced today that it has been awarded follow-on orders from Northrop Grumman Information Systems to provide electronic assemblies for the communications, navigation and identification (CNI) avionics system on Lockheed Martin's F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter program. These additional orders bring the program total to approximately $10 million since the Company's initial award in 2005.

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.

The F-35 is a supersonic, multirole, 5th generation stealth fighter. Three F-35 variants derived from a common design, developed together and using the same sustainment infrastructure worldwide, will replace at least 13 types of aircraft for nine nations initially, making the Lightning II the most cost-effective fighter program in history.

"Sypris Electronics is proud to be a key supplier to and partner of Northrop Grumman on the CNI next-generation avionics system supporting the multi-billion dollar, multi-national Joint Strike Fighter program," John Walsh, President of Sypris Electronics. "Our proven expertise in designing, developing and manufacturing secure communications and situational awareness technologies for the Department of Defense and Prime communities continues to play an important role in our Nation's security."
