AAR announced this past week that it has been selected by the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command (AMCOM), Huntsville, Alabama, to upgrade and modify the Government of Egypt's Integrated Air Defense 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 Defense 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 defenses. 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 U.S. Army.
