BJG Electronics Group (BJG) has announced a long-term agreement with Korean Aerospace Industries (KAI) to support the Korean Utility Helicopter – “KUH-1 Surion” – and the Light Armed Helicopter (LAH) programme with interconnect and electromechanical components.

The KUH-1 Surion is Korea’s first indigenous helicopter and is being deployed for operations in Korea with the military, police, emergency medical transport, forest service, and coast guard.

Further variants of the KUH-1 Surion have enhanced interiors suited to VIP passengers and structurally strengthened versions support an external payload including fuel tanks or weapons.

‘Consistent quality supply’

The multi-year agreement with BJG will allow KAI to minimise inventory and assure consistent quality supply as programme requirements dictate. BJG has provided similar products & supply chain services to many of the world’s leading aviation OEMs.

Glenn Davidson, BJG CEO, commented: “BJG is honoured to join KAI as a supplier to the KUH-1 Surian helicopter program.

“Our team is committed to meeting KAI’s demanding supplier requirements and contributing to the success of this program in the coming years.”
