Meta Special Aerospace’s team of experts have designed, rebuilt, improved, operated, and delivered high-reliability advanced multi-spectral airborne payloads and training to our tip of the spear forces consistently for over 30 years. Throughout our history, we have developed and built over 100 modified King Air and expanded this reach into custom enhancements for the entire King Air Family and other general and business aviation-class aircraft. In addition to modified aircraft, our experts have developed products for government and international security services, providing many modifications, ISR solutions, and Special Missions Operations.
Meta Special Aerospace provides a full range of aerospace solutions from integrated Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) operational services, to specialized training and exercise support, to advanced mission payload technologies, to Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) and aircraft integration services.
We provide turnkey C4ISR solutions – from custom aircraft design and engineering, to sustainment and logistics support, to certification and training support, to processing, exploitation, and dissemination – supporting our international partners and US government operations across the globe for over a decade, including the AFRICOM Sable Spear Program.
Understanding the evolving landscape in customer demand, we maintain a rolling aircraft acquisition, maintenance, upgrade, modification, and logistics support program for commercial aviation, as well as special mission aircraft with leading C4ISR capabilities for our defense partners ready to deploy at any time.
As a recognized industry leader with decades of operational experience in Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) and Electronic Warfare (EW) support for Special Operations Forces (SOF), we deliver a full suite of specialized SIGINT/EW training solutions, including SOF exercise design and SOF SIGINT/EW operator training in both classroom and in-field courses.
