Ampex Data Systems (Ampex), a Delta Information Systems Company, announced the award of an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract in support of the Naval Air Warfare Center, Aircraft Division (NAWCAD) located in Patuxent River, Maryland. Ampex’s Full Rate Production Multiple Award Contract provides NAWCAD, and other United States Department of Defense organizations, production of mission system avionics, mission system computers/processors, displays, and signal distribution systems among other avionics.
Known for their ruggedized mission systems, Ampex has supported United States Navy mission avionics and flight test instrumentation since 1950. Now Ampex supports several United States Air Force and United States Navy programs to include the F-15, F-16, F-18, MQ-1, MQ-8, MQ-25, RQ-4, P-3, and P-8 among many others. Most notably, Ampex provides the network file servers and boot computers that are the digital backbone of the United States Navy’s E-2 C/D Hawkeye fleet. Ampex says it will complete the work in its Hayward, Calif. and in Colorado Springs, Colo. facilities.
“Other United States Department of Defense organizations can use this new contract vehicle, but we especially look forward to leveraging our decades of experience in direct support to the warfighter. This will expand our already deep ties with the United States Navy as we build upon our ongoing success in providing the fleet the best-in-class mission avionics systems,” says Jim Orahood, corporate vice president and general manager of Ampex Data Systems.
