Avarint was awarded a $52.35 million cost-plus-fixed-fee, cost-reimbursement, indefinite-quantity engineering service contract by the USAF Test Centre Specialised Contracting Branch.

Under the agreement, Avarint will develop software that allows the Digital Integrated Air Defence System (DIADS) to link with other systems used by the Benefield Anechoic Facility at Edwards Air Force Base, California.

This would support test missions for B-2, F-22 and F-35 aircraft, as well as Miniature Air Launch Decoy, Miniature Air Launch Decoy Jamming and other red/blue flag training activities.

The system is due to be completed by 31 March 2025.

Funds worth $481,402 are being allocated to the programme from the USAF FY2020 research and development budget.
