BAE Systems Hawk National Road Show at 2011 Military Bowl

WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BAE Systems’ Hawk Advanced Jet Training System (AJTS) National Road Show will make its final stop of the year at the 2011 Military Bowl, being held at the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium in Washington, D.C., Wednesday, December 28. The U.S. Air Force Academy Falcons will host the Toledo University Rockets.

“Along with our Hawk AJTS partner Northrop Grumman we are proud to be a part of the Military Bowl and of the opportunity to honor our Armed Forces”

The Hawk AJTS demonstration trailer will be open to the public at the Military Village at the Armory Mall from 12:00 pm – 4:30 pm on Wednesday, December 28. BAE Systems is offering the Hawk AJTS, the world's most advanced, successful and proven jet training system, as a replacement for the venerable, but aging T-38 trainer as part of the U.S. Air Force’s T-X program.

The 2011 Military Bowl is presented by Northrop Grumman, BAE Systems’ Hawk AJTS strategic partner, and is dedicated to honoring the military and supporting the USO.

“Along with our Hawk AJTS partner Northrop Grumman we are proud to be a part of the Military Bowl and of the opportunity to honor our Armed Forces,” said Robert Wood, Vice President and lead for the BAE Systems, Inc. Hawk Advanced Jet Training System Program. “The Road Show display at the 2011 Military Bowl offers a unique opportunity for our team to highlight the Hawk AJTS aircraft’s in-flight and ground-based training systems while showcasing how it can deliver off-the-shelf capabilities today. State of the art advanced jet training capabilities that are proven, yet developed for growth are critical to meet the needs of our U.S. Air Force customer today and in the future.”

In September, BAE Systems and Northrop Grumman announced an exclusive strategic partnership to compete in the USAF T-X program. BAE Systems will prime the pursuit and Northrop Grumman will serve as the manufacturing partner. Northrop Grumman is the original manufacturer of the T-38.

The Hawk AJTS effectively integrates live and synthetic air and ground based elements to successfully train pilots for 5th generation fighters such as the F-35 Lightning II and the F-22 Raptor. It is the world’s only fully-integrated off-the-shelf system in service today. The Hawk AJTS system is uniquely tailored to meet the needs of the U.S. Air Force.

The Hawk display features a demonstration trailer that showcases video, simulations and interactive exhibits, including a cockpit simulator, illustrating the unique features of the Hawk AJTS. It has travelled to air shows, trade shows and conferences across the country.
