Electronic Systems Upgrade At Egyptian Air Defence Forces

AAR : 05 May, 2010  (Application Story)
Working with the US Army, AAR will perform material upgrades for the Egyptian Integrated Air Defence Command and Control System
AAR has been selected by the US Army Aviation and Missile Command (AMCOM), Huntsville, Alabama, to upgrade and modify the Government of Egypt’s Integrated Air Defence Command and Control System. This work will be performed by AAR Precision Systems located in Huntsville, Alabama. The contract is valued at approximately $8 million.

The Integrated Air Defence Command and Control System is a single command and control, communication, computer, intelligence and battle management (C4I/BM) network designed to integrate airborne and land-based air defences. AAR will upgrade and modernize the system by replacing older electronic components with advanced solid-state circuitry to increase reliability and operability, minimize obsolescence issues and increase system longevity. AAR is currently under contract to support the Government of Egypt on a separate engineering services program administered through the US Army.

“AAR is proud to continue its support to the Government of Egypt through our relationship with the US Army’s Security Assistance Command,” said Terry Stinson, Group Vice President of AAR’s Structures & Systems segment. “We have been involved in the development and maintenance of missile defence systems for over 20 years and have unique, high-value repair, refurbishment, sustainability and obsolescence mitigation capabilities.”

Precision Systems provides precision machining, fabrication and engineering services and designs and manufactures a wide variety of interior and exterior composite structures for defence and commercial markets. AAR recently combined AAR Composites and AAR Summa Technology into a single business, AAR Precision Systems, to provide customers with a single source for advanced aerostructure design, engineering and manufacturing services.
