Norristown, PA. April 2014 – LCR Embedded Systems, Inc., a leading manufacturer of backplanes and ruggedized integrated chassis, is pleased to announce it has been awarded a follow-on sub-contract by BAE Systems for the Lot 4 production supply of chassis, which will house mission computer systems on-board the P-8A Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft. The P-8A is a military aircraft currently being developed for the U.S. Navy by Boeing, and is a derivative of its 737-800 Next-Generation aircraft. The P-8A will conduct anti- submarine warfare and anti-surface warfare for the Navy.
Nissen Isakov, President of LCR Embedded Systems stated, “This Lot 4 production award is the culmination of a relationship with BAE Systems that began over eight years ago during the initial system concept through to development, prototype, qualification, and supplying of flight test systems. Our support and responsiveness to BAE Systems during this early period was followed by three years of supplying systems for the P-8A low rate initial production (LRIP) aircraft.” BAE Systems’ P-8A Program Manager Gary Rubasch stated that “LCR has fully supported BAE Systems from the beginning on this critical program and has become a key supplier in allowing BAE Systems to meet its delivery obligations and truly has supported BAE Systems as a partner on this important program.”
In early 2014, LCR will initiate delivery on the Lot 4 production subcontract with each ship set being comprised of 13 different chassis assemblies. The program is expected to continue in production well past 2020 as the P-3 to P-8A fleet transition is completed.
