BAE Systems will provide installation, engineering, and sustainment support services to ensure the continued safe operation of US military aircraft.

BAE Systems is providing shore-based landing systems integration (LSI) support services for instrument carrier landing systems and instrument landing systems (ICLS/ILS), under a four-year $42.5 million contract from the USN.

The new ILS will provide USN pilots with increased guidance capabilities via radio beam signals that aircraft computers translate. This will enable pilots to correct their flight path ‘and operate aircraft without instruction from an air traffic controller’, BAE Systems announced on 30 March.

BAE Systems is a member of the lead systems integrator team on the LSI contract, working with the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division Webster Outlying Field.

The company is also providing support at US military installations for ICLS and ILS support.
