New contract announcement - British MoD

 

 

AUGUST 2018

 

 

New Contract Bristish MoD

 

 

Following a technical seminar held in the summer of 2017, ABI Electronics has just been awarded a contract to supply its exclusive electronic reverse engineering system, RevEng, to the MoD's Defence Electronics and Components Agency (DECA).

 

 

The Electrical and Instrumentation Product Line (E&I), based at the DECA Sealand site, is responsible for the maintenance, repair, overhaul and upgrade of electrooptical, electro-mechanical, electronics pitot, static, hydraulic, pneumatic and fuel management equipment used on both fixed wing aircraft, such as Typhoon, Tornado, Hawk and Sentry, and rotary wing aircraft including Sea King, Lynx, Chinook, Wildcat and Gazelle. Manned by over 30 highly skilled technicians with more than 200 years of experience, E&I plays a vital role in keeping aircraft from all three services flying, carrying out repairs, overhaul and modification across a wide range of equipment. The E&I team provide skilled maintenance and service for a huge variety of equipment, but there is one thing that they all have in common; their enthusiasm to continue to provide the best possible support to the UK Armed Forces.

 

Defence Electronics Components Agency

 

Shortly after the announcement that the UK had been chosen to be the avionics sustainment hub in Europe for the F-35 joint strike fighter program, ABI Electronics, a British manufacturer of specialist test and repair products operating since 1983, was invited to conduct a technical seminar at the Sealand site. Over the lifetime of the programme, components for hundreds of European-based F-35 aircraft will be serviced and maintained at DECA’s site in North Wales. The event took place in July 2017 and DECA engineers, who had already been working with ABI products for over 20 years, had the opportunity to see the company's latest products in action.

 

During the on-site seminar, DECA's lead engineer stated that “despite having the latest ATEs and dedicated board level test systems, ABI products take us to the ultimate stage of fault finding a circuit board. We have been able to identify component level faults with ABI’s BoardMaster that no other system would. We don’t call it by name here in the lab, we call it “the life-saver” system!”
