Cobham to Provide Slip Rings for the F-35 Lightning II Targeting System

Cobham has been selected to provide slip rings to the F-35 Lightning II’s Electro-Optical Targeting System (EOTS).

The slip rings allow the EOTS to transmit data and electrical power through a continuously rotating joint.


The value of this order, which requires Cobham to provide slip rings to F-35 aircraft produced under that program's Low Rate Initial Production (LRIP) contracts #10 and #11 - with an option for LRIP #12, the F-35's first production lot - is not disclosed for competitively sensitive reasons.


Work under this contract will be performed at Cobham's facility in Naples, Florida.


Separately, Cobham already provides cryocoolers to the EOTS from its facility in Orchard Park, New York.
