Aircraft depends on legacy—and sometimes obsolete—equipment. Parts obsolescence negatively impacts a variety of programs and capabilities. Defining the issue is not as easy as simply saying that a part is not made anymore. Parts obsolescence also includes components that are incapable of supporting newer, more technologically advanced platforms and equipment.
For the military, the issue of obsolescence is a challenging one because the critical systems that the obsolete components support cannot simply be abandoned. When possible, we source any existing or compatible solutions. Alternatives include integrating a new component or redesigning an existing system.
ADS specialize in solving problems by connecting customers with the right suppliers. Through our thousands of long-standing supplier relationships, we quickly source and deliver equipment so you can avoid long lead times, quality issues and contracting difficulties.
