AAI Test and Training to Provide ABE for USAF and SOCOM

AAI Test and Training has announced that it has received a $7.7 million Advanced Boresight Equipment (ABE) award from the Defense Logistics Agency to provide 16 Model 310A ABE core test systems for the U.S. Air Force and Special Operations Command (SOCOM) Bell Boeing CV-22 Osprey fleets.

The company has already delivered more than 40 ABE systems to the Air Force supporting more than 10 different aircraft platforms. In addition, SOCOM has utilized AAI Test and Training's ABE to align its fixed-wing aircraft fleet for more than five years.

"ABE's long-standing reliability for so many aircraft platforms speaks for itself," says Senior Vice President and General Manager Robert Peters of AAI Test and Training.

"More than 160 of our ABE systems have been fielded by the U.S. Air Force, Navy, Army and Marine Corps, as well as our allies around the world, in support of 24 different aircraft platforms."

ABE is a gyro-stabilized, electro-optical angular measurement system designed to align aircraft subsystems. Because the ABE system supports concurrent maintenance and does not require aircraft to be jacked and leveled during testing, both depot- and operational-level users can maintain schedules and reduce maintenance costs.

These features also support increased manufacturing throughput for original equipment manufacturers.
