BAE Systems Australia has received a two-year contract extension from the Australian Defence Force (ADF) to continue providing through life support for the Navigation Trainer Project (NTP), the company announced on 5 April.

Under the extension, BAE Systems will provide engineering and maintenance support for the NTP’s Synthetic Navigation Trainer and Airborne Navigation Trainer systems until mid-2018. Through life support is provided by the company’s maintenance team onsite at RAAF Base East Sale and is supported by its engineering team at Edinburgh Parks in South Australia.

The systems support the No. 1 Flight Training School for air combat officers of the air force and naval aviation warfare officers at RAAF Base East Sale, Victoria. 

Steve Drury, aerospace director, BAE Systems Australia, said: ‘The NTP is critical to providing quality air combat and aviation warfare training for ADF aircrew. We’ve been sustaining these systems for 12 years and, in that time, have delivered systems availability at 100 percent. We look forward to continuing to provide that high standard of training support to sustain ADF capability.’
