Adama Technologies has commenced the production of landing gear components for the US Air Force’s (USAF) B-52 Stratofortress strategic bomber.

Under the terms of the contract received by Adama, the company will be responsible for positioning control cams, which are part of the main landing gear assembly for the USAF aircraft.

Adama Technologies president Harold Tanner said: “On this project for the B-52, our customer was informed that we are starting production earlier than anticipated.

“I believe it is this spirit of exceeding expectations and ‘overdelivering’ that gives ADAC an edge in the highly competitive military contracts market.”

The company expects to deliver the order to the airforce by July.

“The aircraft provides the country with immediate nuclear and conventional global strike capability.”

Tanner added: “We are excited about what we are doing as a company and really thrilled to see the continued growth and development of our strategic growth plan.”

Developed by Boeing, the B-52 is a US long-range, jet-powered bomber that has played a major part in the US Military operations and strategic planning for decades.

Claimed to be the most combat-capable bomber in the US inventory, the aircraft provides the country with immediate nuclear and conventional global strike capability.

The bomber features a high-mission-capable rate, in addition to a large payload, long-range, persistence and ability to employ both nuclear and conventional precision standoff weapons.

In February, Adama Technologies completed a US military contract, which was awarded in April 2016 for the production of landing gear components for the USAF’s F-15 aircraft.
