b2ap3_thumbnail_IMG_1775.JPGIn terms of air warfare, the United States of America claims air superiority over every other nation on earth. This claim is further strengthened by Lockheed Martin’s latest multi-role jet fighter, the F-35 Lightning II. The F-35 is the United States second 5th generation fighter jet. 

As a major sub-tier supplier to the F35 program, Amphenol Aerospace employees and local dignitaries welcomed Lockheed Martin’s F-35 Director of Business Development, Eric Van Camp and the F-35 Flight Demonstrator to their new manufacturing facility located in Sidney, NY September 23rd-25th. Many employees and local officials had the opportunity to speak with Mr. Van Camp as well as fly the F-35 Demonstrator.

b2ap3_thumbnail_IMG_1795.JPGAmphenol Aerospace supports the F-35 program with a new 270,000 square foot manufacturing facility, state of the art machinery and test equipment, and our most valued asset: a highly skilled direct and indirect work force. This facility designs, manufactures and tests over 200 interconnect products that are used in the F-35, and is considered a Key Supplier for the program.

Amphenol Aerospace supplies products unavailable anywhere else in the world, and are critical to the design of a number of systems on the platform, including the Electro Optical Targeting System, the Integrated Core Processor, the Electronic Warfare System, and others.

 Amphenol – and the entire town of Sidney, NY – is proud to support Lockheed Martin on the JSF, a warplane that will form the cornerstone of the United States’ Air force and Navy arsenal.
