BAE Systems has received two contracts valued at nearly $63 million to provide

and ability to deliver the right systems and expertise to support F-16
aircraft operated by U.S. allies.

“We are extremely pleased that Indonesia has called upon BAE Systems to again
deliver the systems and services they require to affordably achieve their
mission readiness,” said Carl Huncharek, program director for BAE Systems.
“For Iraq, this is a unique opportunity to assist a new user of the F-16 and
help train those who will support the aircraft for years to come.”

BAE Systems has delivered more than 25,000 support equipment and test systems
to more than 24 countries worldwide. The company has done so with a 98 percent
on time delivery record and a 99 percent customer return rate for the service,
training, repair, and thru-life support of the systems provided. BAE Systems
will develop and deliver these items from its Fort Worth, Texas facility by
early 2014.

BAE Systems is also a leading systems integration provider for F-16 avionics
upgrades. In August, South Korea selected BAE Systems as the sole source
contractor to upgrade its F-16 fleet. Additionally, the company supports the
U.S. Air National Guard’s upgraded F-16s and the Turkish Air Force’s upgraded
F-16s. BAE Systems’ upgrade solution includes the Commercial Fire Control
Computer, which is currently the highest throughput and most supportable
mission computer in any F-16.
