As the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) of this equipment, Triumph Actuation Systems, LLC is the sole designer, developer and manufacturer of the RRHB and Overhaul Kits. As the OEM, Triumph Actuation Systems, LLC is the only qualified manufacturer and supplier of the RRHB and is the only known source that is capable of providing the RRHB and Overhaul Kits with the same form, fit and function that is compatible with the existing Catapult Launch configuration.

The Navy does not possess a technical data package to permit the development of the required support/services by any other sources than the OEM. There are no planned future requirements for this item at this time.
