BAE Systems (UK) has signed a contract under which it will supply the US Navy with systems for the safe landing of aircraft. The agreement also provides for the design, installation and technical support of systems to ensure the continued safe operation of US military aircraft.
This is reported by the Business Ware portal, referring to the press service of BAE Systems.
The amount of the contract, which is designed for four years, is $ 42,5 million. It provides for the integration of coastal landing systems with instrument landing systems for aircraft.
