GA-ASI continues collaboration with Cobham for Protector

23rd July 2019 - 17:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


General Atomics Aeronautical Systems (GA-ASI), announced in July that it has reaffirmed its collaboration with Cobham Aviation Services UK for through-life support strategies for the UK’s Protector RG Mk 1 UAS.

First delivery of the GA-ASI developed UAS to the Royal Air Force is expected in the early 2020s.

Cobham has been providing technical and maintenance support for the RAF Reaper Ground Control Stations at RAF Waddington since 2015.

‘Working with Cobham, we’ve established an excellent support network for the RAF and the Protector RPA,’ said Linden Blue, CEO, GA-ASI. ‘We’ve teamed with Cobham to support a number of customers over the years, and we’re excited to continue to work together to develop this long-term through-life sustainment solution for the Protector program. With the RAF Reapers on continued deployed operations we want to ensure a robust and seamless transition from Reaper to Protector.’

The support services include developing maintenance strategies that provide lower cost sustainment over the life cycle of the product and providing distribution and other logistical support.
