BAE Systems, a leading security, defense, and aerospace firm, providing a series of products and services for defense applications, will be supplying laser warning sensing solutions to the U.S. military aircraft, based on a $17.7 million agreement offered to them by Alliant Techsystems.
The company will be delivering the AAR-47 Missile Approach Warning System components, a segment of the U.S. Navy road-map aerial security system, for use in the U.S. Navy, Army, Air Force and alien flights. These laser surveillance sensors offers significant warning systems against hostile threats.
According to David Millspaugh, Product Support director for Soldier & Vehicle Solutions, based in Austin, they have already supplied over 16,000 systems and this novel contract is aimed to support Alliant Techsystems and the Navy and that they are highly honored to extend their support by delivering the solutions for the AAR-47 Missile Approach Warning System.
Alliant Techsystems, a major contractor and development partner, has been offering the installation and delivery of the AAR-47 system for military applications. BAE Systems has pioneered the laser surveillance technology for over 20 years and their solutions supplies secure, laser threat warning covering the threat class detection and angle-of-arrival information. Each of the sensors is able to process and monitor the threats autonomously.
