Astronics has won two five year contracts to support UK’s Bowman tactical communication systems, the company said in a statement.
The contracts include full logistical support for Bowman Radio Test solutions (RTS), including necessary repair and calibration, spares provisioning, obsolescence management and logistics support analysis required to maintain the 80 systems currently fielded.
According to the contracts it will also provide engineering design services and management support of the Bowman RTS equipment, which was originally supplied by Astronics as part of the General Dynamics U.K. led Bowman program.
"Astronics' Bowman RTS is a critical test system used to verify and certify operational tactical radios and communications equipment for the UK MoD's current tactical radio fleet. We originally supplied the equipment to this program over 10 years ago. With these wins, we will continue to support the MoD's strategy to ensure continuous capability for voice and data communication," Peter J. Gundermann, President and CEO of Astronics said.
