Boeing Contract Won

AmSafe Industries, Inc., the provider of engineered restraint systems to the aviation, defence and speciality vehicle markets, has announced an award from Boeing for a $45 million contract.
AmSafe will supply a 9G barrier net with stationary and movable smoke barriers for the new KC-46A aerial refuelling tanker aircraft, which was recently selected by the US Air Force to replace the KC-135 Stratotanker.  Deliveries are expected in 2015.
Neal McKeever, Vice President of Defense for AmSafe, said:  “Our unique capabilities in the design and manufacture of barrier restraints provide Boeing and the Air Force a low-risk, high-value solution for the KC-46A programme.”
