LOUISVILLE, KY, June 2-The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has awarded Sypris Test & Measurement Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sypris Solutions, a multi-year contract that provides for onsite calibration repair services of various FAA owned test, measurement and diagnostic equipment (TMDE), located at an estimated 1,350 facilities throughout the continental United States, Alaska, Hawaii, South Pacific and the Caribbean. This equipment is used to maintain operational capability of the National Air Space System (NAS), and is critical to ensure a high level of safety for all air travel. The contract value, including all option years, exceeds $32 million.

Kathy Smith Boyd, president of Sypris Test & Measurement, says “Sypris is uniquely qualified to provide this service onsite for all locations within the NAS infrastructure. We are dedicated to maximizing availability of TMDE used by thousands of technicians daily on FAA systems. Our efforts help ensure technicians can meet projected demands, contribute to decreased FAA system outages, and ultimately contribute to efficiency, reliability, maintainability and operability that results in increased airspace capacity and safety.”
