AAR to design, build mobile subsystems for Raytheon

AAR has won a contract to design and build Transportable/Mobile Subsystems for Raytheon’s Integrated Defense Systems in support of a Raytheon C4I Systems customer.

Integrated Technologies will integrate the Transportable/Mobile Subsystems using ISO shelters built by AAR Mobility in Cadillac, Mich.

The mobile C4I systems, comprised of command control, communications, computers and intelligence, will provide enhanced interoperability and improve communications between joint air and ground operations. The contract, valued in excess of $17 million, was competitively awarded.

“AAR is excited to support Raytheon’s defense systems program and looks forward to building on our existing relationship,” said Melissa Bosley, Vice President and General Manager of AAR Integrated Technologies. “This contract win is a direct result of AAR’S commitment to cross-divisional collaboration, and I want to thank the teams at AAR Mobility and InTech for their seamless and unified presentations of AAR’s C4I capabilities.”
