GE Aviation Receives UAE F-16 Block 60 Data Transfer System Award

03/22/2018

CINCINNATI, OH --- Lockheed Martin recently awarded GE Aviation a multi-million-dollar contract to upgrade the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Air Force’s F-16 data transfer system. The contract involves a redesign of the system and an aircraft retrofit that will extend the life of this capability for the UAE Air Force’s F-16 fleet. 

“This development work, scheduled for the next several years, advances the data transfer product line to be ready for next generation applications,” said Alan Caslavka, president of Avionics Systems for GE Aviation. 

The data transfer system is an integral part of the Block 60 avionics suite that provides mission data to the aircraft, allowing the pilot to execute missions more efficiently. 

The UAE Air Force operates a fleet of Lockheed Martin F-16E/F Block 60 aircraft. The Block 60 brings together a host of systems on the leading edge of technology to deliver the capabilities necessary to meet modern defense requirements. 


GE Aviation, an operating unit of General Electric Company is a world-leading provider of commercial and military jet engines, and avionics, digital solutions and electrical power systems for aircraft.
