Tyonek subsidiary to support A-Kit manufacturing & modification for C-130H

April 12, 2018 (by Jason Holmes) - Tyonek Services Overhaul Facility, a subsidiary of Tyonek Services Group, Inc. (TSG), will support Scientific Research Corporation (SRC) through manufacturing services and modification of C-130H model aircraft with the updated all-digital radar warning receiver AN/ALR-69A(V) RWR. SRC is the prime contractor.

Tyonek will provide manufacturing services for A-Kits and Trail/Verification Aircraft Installations with contract options for additional A-Kit manufacturing. System enhancements leverage the data transfer improvement and weight reduction provided by the use of Fiber Optics in the system design.

"This new program allows us to leverage our comprehensive manufacturing and aircraft modification expertise," said Steve Adlich, President, TSG. "Tyonek has a long history of working with SRC for C-130 modification efforts and we are very happy to continue to grow our relationship with this new initiative. This is another great example of our ability to provide turn-key aviation solutions with A-Kit manufacturing and aircraft integration services. This program showcases Tyonek's extensive experience with the C-130 airframe. "
