Home' Asia Pacific Defence Reporter : APDR March 2010 Contents Raytheon Australia signed a contract for the provision of capabilities
to support Australian Super Hornet operational and training
requirements on February 19.
Thecontract involves training aircrew and selected other Commonwealth
personnel as well as maintaining serviceable, properly configured training
devices. This follows the separate procurement by the Commonwealth of
a number of Super Hornet training simulators and other devices.
In order to execute the contract Raytheon Australia has assembled
a proven team who have worked together over the past five years on
ser vice support programs. This includes Link Simulation & Training - L-3
Flight Training equipment and Milskil, the current provider of Hornet
training support at RAAF Williamtown and Tindal.
Raytheon Australia’s Managing Director Michael Ward said the Super
Hornet training contract win was further evidence of Raytheon Australia’s
growing strength as a provider of training solutions to the ADF.
“This is a welcome addition to the Raytheon Australia force preparedness
portfolio. The contract extends our existing pedigree to ready and sustain
the force that has been built upon designing innovative solutions such
as the Hornet Aircrew Training System and the RAN Retention and
Motivation Initiative,” Mr Ward said.
