Aerosonic Corporation (AMEX:AIM), a leading supplier of precision flight products for commercial, business and military aircraft, today announced that it has received a new purchase order from Korea Aerospace Industries Ltd. ("KAI") in support of its T50 Golden Eagle jet trainer sale to Indonesia. The order is to supply air data systems that include its integrated multifunction probe ("IMFP") and related equipment for the production of the jet trainer aircraft. These additional shipments to KAI will begin in March 2012, and are planned to ship concurrently with existing orders.
The IMFP provides angle of attack, air data sensing and pressure sensing for military aircraft in one probe, reducing flight management system complexity on military aircraft. It is currently installed on several military aircraft.
"We are proud to play a role and share in the success of the T50 program and this very important win for KAI in their first international T50 export sale," commented Doug Hillman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "This order provides us with a significant increase in our backlog for one of our technologically advanced products in a growing segment of the military market, and further strengthens our relationship with a valued customer."
