Compliance, Safety and Operational Excellence

VT Group is fully engaged with the U.S. Army aviation community to promote Foreign Military Sales (FMS) – a critical element of U.S. foreign policy and national security that strengthens defense relations with our allies. At VT Group, our in-depth knowledge of FMS programs and administration supports the U.S. Army Aircraft Survivability Equipment (ASE) program, providing Integrated Logistics Support (ILS) input for the ASE on international and FMS programs. We conduct, evaluate, review, and propose requirements for facility review, factory training, instructor and key personnel training, and New Equipment Training Team (NETT).
Our FMS services support the Apache helicopter and UH-60 Blackhawk programs, including logistics relating to the Longbow Crew Trainer (LCT), multiple Longbow Maintainer Training Devices (MTD), fielded AH-64 TADSS and other TADSS unique to FMS such as the Multi-Purpose Display Trainer (MPDT). Logistics specialties include:

  • International, co-production and Foreign Military Sales (FMS) programs
  • Field support maintenance engineering services
  • Field support engineering and analysis services
  • Maintenance engineering services
  • Equipment Improvement Recommendations (EIR)/field reports
  • Special logistics data management projects and readiness management
  • Performance-based logistics

In addition, VT Group provides Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) management and operations at remote sites in harsh environments around the world, including forward-operating bases in Afghanistan, Iraq, and aboard U.S. Navy ships and research vessels in the Arctic Ocean. All VT Group Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) operators have military experience and are skilled in the technical operation, imagery analysis, payload operations and maintenance of our unmanned systems—delivering UAV support services at a completion rate that is safe and 100% on time.

We constantly pursue the best-in-breed technologies among UAS platforms, payloads, data-links, systems engineering and logistics solutions. We provide adjunct testing services to defense, civil and commercial customers, supporting unmanned systems-based development and operational verification on both VT Group-owned unmanned assets and client-furnished platforms.
