Ampex Data Systems (Ampex), a Delta Information Systems Company, is proud to announce the award of an indefinite-delivery / indefinite-quantity contract in support of the Naval Air Warfare Center, Aircraft Division (NAWCAD) located in Patuxent River, Maryland. Ampex’s Full Rate Production Multiple Award Contract provides NAWCAD, and other United States Department of Defense organizations, production of mission system avionics, mission system computers / processors, displays, and signal distribution systems among other avionics.

Known for the fastest ruggedized mission systems in the industry, Ampex has supported United States Navy mission avionics and flight test instrumentation since 1950. Today, Ampex supports several United States Air Force and United States Navy programs to include the F-15, F-16, F-18, MQ-1, MQ-8, MQ-25, RQ-4, P-3, P-8, and many others.

Ampex will complete work in its Hayward, CA and Colorado Springs, CO facilities.

“Other United States Department of Defense organizations can use this new contract vehicle, but we especially look forward to leveraging our decades of experience in direct support to the warfighter. This will expand our already deep ties with the United States Navy as we build upon our ongoing success in providing the Fleet the best-in-class mission avionics systems,” stated Jim Orahood, Vice President and General Manager of Ampex Data Systems.
