This is a news release from Tyonek Native Corporation

Tyonek Services Group, Inc. (TSG) announced today the acquisition of Selex Galileo's Avionics System Integration (ASI) facility in Stennis, Mississippi. The company will be named Tyonek Services Overhaul Facility – Stennis, LLC (TSOF-S) and is expected to create at least 26 new jobs over the next two years.

TSOF-S offers Avionics Systems Integration services by installing state-of-the art technology and C4ISR into aircraft platforms. The integrated Security Assistance Support Center provides a tailored SCIF and facility to support special operations training missions. The facility, built to withstand Category 4 hurricanes, can also serve as an emergency response center.

"We are pleased to welcome Tyonek to Hancock County and to Stennis International Airport," said Bill Cork, CEO of the Hancock County Port and Harbor Commission. "We look forward to their successful operation in this new location."

The airport is a 1,691-acre, Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 139 general aviation facility. It has an 8,500 foot grooved runway with a 500 foot over-run and more than 340,000 square feet of surfaced aprons and taxiways. The airport is all-weather capable, with an Automated Weather Observation System (AWOS-3), unicom communications, and Instrument Landing System (ILS). It handles a moderate mix of general aviation and military traffic each day.

"The SELEX Galileo ASI acquisition fits well within the C4ISR vertical and brings added value to our current client base and future partners. The Maintenance and Repair Operation (MRO) with capabilities serving fixed wing and rotorcraft airframes including powerplant, and an Integrated Support Facility (ISF) will add value to our current core capabilities. This acquisition aligns with our commitment to provide value to our Shareholders and increase our footprint in the market space," said James R Hoffman, CEO of Tyonek Native Corporation.

"We know that the unique capabilities of this team and facility will bring great value to our customers and complement our already robust services offering," said Steve Adlich, Interim President, Tyonek Services Group, Inc. "With TSOF-S, we can complete sophisticated avionics systems integration and maintenance projects to support our customers and their critical missions."
