1st December 2014 - 14:54 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Raytheon will design and implement an Air and Missile Defense Operation Center (ADOC) for Qatar as part of a foreign military sales contract between the State of Qatar and the US government, announced on 1 December.

Qatar is currently undertaking a modernisation and recapitalisation effort across its armed forces, and the ADOC will provide the country with an advanced Integrated Air and Missile Defense (IAMD) command and control system.

The ADOC will integrate US air defence systems, such as Patriot, the Early Warning Radar and THAAD, with European air defence systems and radars; as well as Qatar's Air Operations Center (AOC).

Dave Gulla, vice president of integrated defense systems’ global integrated sensors, Raytheon, said: ‘This contract reinforces the depth of our systems integration capability and expertise in integrated air and missile defence. The ADOC will have the latest command and control, cyber, and information assurance capability in partnership with the air force to enhance regional security and meet the State of Qatar's requirements.’
