[Avionics Magazine 09-19-2016] Cobham’s Radio Frequency (RF) microelectronics will support the F-35 program, according to the company, which says it has recently received a series of orders worth “tens of millions of dollars.” The work will be performed at Cobham’s San Diego, California, Microelectronic Solutions facility, part of the Cobham Advanced Electronics Solutions sector.

Cobham already contributes several components to the F-35 Lightning II, including microelectronic components, microwave systems, motion control solutions for the Electro-optical Targeting System (EOTS) gimbal, communications chips, pilot survival products and aerial refueling equipment.
