GROUP MEMBERS GROUP MEMBERS: AAI CORPORATION 124 Industry Lane Hunt Valley, MD 21030 www.aaicorp.com Phone: +1-410-666-1400 Chief Executive: Ellen M. Lord, Senior VP and General Manager AOC contact: Sharon Corona Phone: +1-410-628-3184 AAI Corporation – an operating unit of Textron Systems, a Textron Inc. company – is a leader in the development and production of innovative, hightechnology products and services for military and government customers in the United States and internationally. The company’s high-technology products and services include unmanned aircraft systems, training and simulation systems, automated aerospace test and maintenance equipment, armament systems, aviation ground support equipment and logistical, engineering and supply chain services. Simulation and Training: The company’s training and simulation systems include embedded shipboard naval crew trainers, air defense trainers, maintenance trainers and electronic combat trainers. Best known among AAI simulation and training products are the Onboard Training (OBT) systems now being delivered to the United States and Australian navies; the Advanced Moving Target Simulator (AMTS) short-range air defense trainer; the E-8 Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System, or J-STARS, trainer; the E-3 Sentry Airborne Warning and Control System, or AWACS, trainer; the C-17, F-22 and F-35 maintenance trainers; the T25 SECT, or Simulator for Electronic Combat Training; the Shadow® Crew Trainer, which is part of the larger Training Aids, Devices, Simulators and Simulations suite; and the C-130H Compass Call Mission Crew Simulator aircrew training system. AAI simulators and stimulators have been used to train virtually all US Navy and Air Force EW systems, including those on the B-52, EA-6B, EF-111, A-10 and F-16 aircraft. AAI’s expertise includes real-time software modeling, simulation and control; embedded and multiprocessor applications; real-time signal processing; and visual and sensor database development. Test and EW Systems: AAI has a considerable heritage of developing innovative flight line and depot-level test equipment. The portable Joint Service Electronic Combat Systems Tester, or JSECST, is used on air base flight lines and aircraft carrier decks to ensure the mission readiness of EW systems and isolate any failure to the faulty box, antenna or cable. Lab JSECST, a derivative of the JSECST system, has been developed for use in systems integration and government EW laboratories. At the depot level, AAI’s AN/ALM-234 Advanced Standard Threat Generator, or ASTG, provides a high-fidelity, dense radio frequency threat environment to evaluate and validate electronic combat system changes and upgrades. The new Advanced Architecture Phase Amplitude and Time Simulator (A2PATS) incorporates phase-coherent properties that allow the creation of signals necessary for future electronic combat scenarios. AAI is a leading producer of modular, automatic test equipment systems supporting DOD initiatives to standardize automatic test equipment for greater efficiency. On the flight line, the Handheld Radar Test Set (HRS) follows AAI’s highly successful Model 527 and provides state-of-the-art radar signal generation and system response testing for the US Navy and other service platforms. AAI’s Universal Test Set (UTS) provides a similar function for groundbased CREW improvised explosive device (IED) jammer systems. The company’s electro-optic/infrared simulators provide testing for airborne countermeasures systems on the flight line and range, as well as in the laboratory. AAI also has introduced an aircrew training system for missile warning systems called MAST, or the Man-portable Aircraft Survivability Equipment (ASE) System Trainer, offering full-range stimulation and detailed afteraction review. In April 2005, AAI Corporation acquired ESL Defence Limited, an EW systems company based in the UK. (See profile under ESL Defence.) In November 2006, AAI acquired Symtx Inc. of Austin, TX. Symtx is a leader in the design and manufacture of highperformance functional test solutions for mission-critical electronic systems on the factory floor, in the laboratory and in the depot. Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS): The company’s family of UAS includes the Shadow 200, which is in full-rate production and deployed as the RQ-7B with U.S Army and Marine Corps forces in Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom. The Shadow tactical UAS has surpassed 360,000 total hours of flight operations. AAI’s family of UAS also includes the Shadow 400, Shadow 600 and Aerosonde®, which is manufactured by the company’s Australian subsidiary, Aerosonde Pty Ltd. This small UAS supports scientific, civil and intelligence and surveillance missions. Services: AAI Services Corporation, a strategic business of AAI, provides total life-cycle support to military and commercial organizations worldwide for its products and those of other companies. The company specializes in responsive, efficient and effective contractor logistics support, depot support, supply chain management and training and simulation systems and service, providing and supporting cutting-edge technologies and equipment for government and commercial customers across the globe.
