SELEX Galileo announces EUR 23m in logistics contracts
SELEX Galileo has announced that it has been awarded logistics support contracts for a range of systems worth in excess of 23 million Euros. According to a 7 December 2011, included in the awards are support agreements for the Tornado aircraft, Falco Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) and a EUR 6M contract to provide engineering support for the upgrade of radar systems.
The company cited new contracting models for the new awards, including pay by the hour arrangements that allow the company and end-user to share greater responsibility for a system’s availability; and a focus on ‘an approach where the market, particularly export customers, appreciate the flexible, modular and accessible nature of this relationship.’
SELEX Galileo said that it can draw upon its technological and systems integration expertise to provide operational support for its products as well as third party products integrated into these systems. This support can be provided over the whole life cycle of the system, simplifying the supply chain for customers and generating improvements in terms of costs and operational efficiency.
