JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
The company announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Elbit Systems - Cyclone Ltd, has been approved as a manufacturer on the Qualified Products List (QPL) for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) program.
The approvals come after a series of successful qualification tests carried out by Lockheed Martin as part of a seven-year agreement for Elbit - Cyclone to deliver 16 unique components and assemblies for the JSF program. Composite parts approved for the JSF include various aeronautical carbon-epoxy laminates and honeycomb sandwich panels for the F-35 family of single-seat, multi-role fighter jets.Yoram Shmuely, Elbit Systems Aerospace Division's General Manager, commented: "Elbit Systems is proud to be a supplier for this prestigious program. This approval represents a significant milestone towards achieving serial production, and hopefully will lead to the receipt of orders for additional F-35 composite parts and assemblies. The recent approval of these major aviation manufacturers acknowledges the trust and recognition Elbit - Cyclone has established in the field of composite components for aerial platforms, and we believe it will pave the way for further business opportunities in this fast- growing market in which advanced technologies and constant innovation play a crucial role".More information: www.elbitsystems.com
