BLACK MOUNTAIN, N.C. - Kearfott Corp. has been awarded an exclusive contract with Korean Aerospace Industries (KAI) to design, develop, and qualify a control stick assembly (CSA) for the new KAI Korean Fighter eXperimental (KF-X) aircraft program.

Under the contract, Kearfott will provide passive CSAs to KAI that will be incorporated into the cockpit of the new KF-X. The CSA is a key flight critical component that allows the pilot to effortlessly direct highly-maneuverable aircraft such as the KF-X under high g-force conditions and in combat situations. Placed on one side of the cockpit, the CSA can be grasped with one hand to easily fly the aircraft using small motions to control pitch and roll.

"Kearfott is proud to be a part of this amazing program and is honored to have been selected to provide the control stick assembly for the KF-X," said Product Line Director of Kearfott’s Motion Systems Division Andrea Davis. "This assembly is a direct result of the extensive experience Kearfott has in designing and manufacturing best-in-class position sensors and controls for the aerospace and defense markets."

WASHINGTON - The United States could use its F-35 Lightning II combat aircraft to down hostile ballistic missiles, such as those routinely launched by North Korea. Pyongyang continues to develop longer range ballistic missiles, as well as working on nuclear weapons.

An F-35 could use an air-to-air missile to hit a hostile ballistic missile during its ascent phase of flight. During this phase, the missile is moving slowly and is unable to deploy decoys. In 2007, Lockheed Martin received a $3 million contract to study the possible use of an air-to-air missile as a hit-to-kill missile defense system.

The United States has spent $40 billion on ground-based missile interceptors.
