12 Dec 2007 | Ref. 390/2007
NASHUA, New Hampshire — BAE Systems opened a new 30,000-square-foot facility at its South Nashua, New Hampshire, location for production work on the F-22A Raptor and F-35 Lightning II electronic warfare programs. The site will support more than 1,400 of BAE Systems’ 4,500 employees who work in New Hampshire and who contribute to the F-22 and F-35 programs.
“The new facility is capable of assembling and testing complex microwave products and performing assembly, integration, and acceptance testing at significantly reduced cost and cycle times,” said Mike Dow, vice president of operations for BAE Systems in Nashua. “It’s an important step in our mission to improve supplier relationships, enhance product design, and inspire our employees to meet the needs of our nation’s men and women in uniform.”
BAE Systems provides the electronic warfare suites for the F-22 and F-35 aircraft. The suites detect, analyze, evaluate, and react to electronic threats fielded by potential adversaries. About 60 suppliers from New Hampshire provide products and services to support the programs.
