Battelle Named Winner of Award
February 24, 2009

Battelle accepted the 2008 Army Aviation Materiel Readiness Award for Contribution by a Major Contractor at a ceremony during the 35th Annual Joseph P. Cribbins Symposium in Huntsville, Alabama February 11th. The Cribbins Symposium, hosted by the Tennessee Valley Chapter of the Army Aviation Association of America, is a gathering of senior leaders and stakeholders in the Army Aviation community to share thoughts on the future of Army Aviation logistics. The participants focus specifically on acquisition, logistics and technology challenges as government and industry partners balance aviation sustainment and modernization in support of an Army at war.

Battelle’s award-winning continuous technology refreshment program was cited as a solution to some of the key challenges facing the Army Aviation community today. The Battelle program supports the U.S Army Aviation and Missile Command (AMCOM) in improving readiness through obsolescence solutions for aging platforms such as the UH60 Black Hawk helicopter. In essence, Battelle develops modernized electronic replacement parts, with the same form, fit and function as the aging and increasingly unreliable legacy parts, which were designed decades ago.
