FORT WORTH, Texas -- February 18, 2013

BAE Systems received a contract valued at nearly $23 million to provide F-16
support equipment, test systems, and spares to the government of Oman. The
contract continues the company’s strong global position to deliver the right
systems and expertise to support F-16 aircraft operated by U.S. allies.

“We are pleased that Oman has again called upon BAE Systems to deliver the
systems and services they require to affordably achieve their mission
readiness,” said Carl Huncharek, program director for BAE Systems. “Our deep
understanding and single point of contact for their sustainment equipment
needs is why we continue to see such strong repeat business.”

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.
