Cobham wins £8M orders for counter IED technologies

31st March 2011 - 12:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Cobham has been awarded orders worth £8 million for the supply of Counter Improvised Explosive Device (C-IED) equipment to undisclosed NATO nations.

Cobham has developed a range of innovative technologies and products, which help to protect soldiers of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in their search for Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs).

"This is another example of Cobham enhancing the operational capability of NATO forces and keeping troops safe, based on the deployment of state-of-the-art technology developed using our own private venture funding," said Fred Cahill, vice president of Cobham Antenna Systems. "Cobham's dismounted, vehicle and robotic C-IED technologies will position us to compete for opportunities worth in excess of £100 million over the next five years."

Work under these contracts will be delivered during the second and third quarters of calendar year 2011.
