The contract is for five years and has an estimated value of US$5.1 million. It requires the AAR to provide contractor logistical support (CLS) for a fleet of 18 AN/MSN-7 Communication Central Systems. The support includes program management, supply of all AN/MSN-7 parts, support equipment components, all system materials and consumables, as well as replenishment of spare parts.
The AN/MSN-7 operates as a self-contained system. Its primary mission is to provide Air Traffic Control tower services for air force operations, such as bare bases and alternate off-base landing areas. The multi-year contract ensures that the US Air Force’s AN/MSN-7 Communications Central Systems will be operational and sustained for years to come.
Jeffrey Jackson, Vice-President and General Manager at AAR Integrated Technologies, said: “We are proud to continue providing contractor logistical support for this strategic US Air Force program and its worldwide mission. This multi-year firm-fixed-price contract will ensure that the AN/MSN-7 fleet will maintain a high state of operational readiness along with upgrading to state-of-the-art equipment to meet the US Air Force’s mission requirements.”
