Lockheed Martin (LMT) is the prime contractor for the next generation of test equipment for U.S. Navy aircraft. The electronic Consolidated Automated Support System (eCASS) program will develop this for use on aircraft carriers and at land bases to support maintenance of key electronic systems on the F/A-18 and other Navy aircraft.

As part of the development and production of eCASS Lockheed gave AAI, a part of Textron Inc. (TXT), a contract to build radio frequency components. These mission equipment kits production is worth about $43 million if all options are exercised. AAI will provide over fifty of the units including two for depot use. As military programs become more-and-more complicated sophisticated test equipment aids in rapid diagnoses and fixes which minimized repair time and maximizes systems availability.
