Aircraft Support Equipment encompasses the procurement of air-launched anti-submarine (ASW) detection and other general support equipment associated with aircraft systems for the Navy. This includes ground electronics equipment, aircraft launch and recovery equipment, photographic equipment, reconnaissance, and electronic warfare process. The program also supports the procurement of aircraft recovery equipment, expeditionary airfield surfacing equipment and accessories, airfield lighting equipment, and visual landing aids for Naval Aviation Expeditionary Airfields (EAF). Additionally, it funds the procurement of common Armament Support Equipment (ASE) and Weapons Support Equipment (WSE) under the procurement and inventory control of the Naval Inventory Control Point and the Naval Air Systems Command to support sustained operations and surge deployments of CV battle groups.

The program also provides for the procurement of aircraft launch, recovery, visual landing aids, and related information systems as well as ancillary items required for installation aboard aircraft carriers, air-capable combatant vessels, amphibious assault ships, and shore stations. It includes baseline funding required for support of 48 ALRE equipment systems. Major categories of ALRE systems support include launcher, recovery, information systems, visual landing aids (VLA), aviation land and launch enclave (ALLE), aviation data management and control system (ADMACS), and Marine Aviation Data Management System - Consolidated Controls (MADMS-CC). The program funds multiple Engineering Change Proposals (ECPs) to rectify critical obsolescence items, resolve evolving cybersecurity upgrades to correct deficiencies identified through the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) mandated risk assessment process, and to implement technical refresh of critical out-of-production ALRE systems.
