AAR Receives $24 Million in Shelter Orders From U.S. Army
WOOD DALE, Ill., /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ --AAR (NYSE: AIR) announced today that it has been awarded a five-year contract to provide lightweight, multi-purpose shelters (LMS) for the U.S. Army, valued up to $14 million. LMS is the primary platform the U.S. Army uses to house and operate command and control equipment for situational awareness and tactical support in various theaters of operation. This is AAR's first award on this large and strategic platform.
The Company was also awarded a three-year contract valued at up to $10 million, under which it will provide 20' ISO shelters for the U.S. Army. The Army will use these shelters for mobile Petroleum Quality Analysis Systems (PQAS) to test and analyze fuels in support of in-theater operations. The contract follows an award for PQAS shelters that AAR received in 2007.
"I'm very proud of our team's ability to innovate and utilize the latest technologies in winning the LMS contract," said David P. Storch, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of AAR CORP. "This award extends AAR's reach across command and control applications with a broader range of mobility products."
To manufacture the new LMS shelters, AAR is using advanced techniques that feature friction stir welding and integrated electromagnetic shielding to house and isolate sophisticated battlefield systems. The durable LMS shelters are designed to be mounted on High Mobility Multi-Purpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWVs or Humvees) for applications ranging from communications to controlling unmanned aircraft. LMS adds to AAR's full line of shelters used by the U.S. Army, which also includes SATS and FMTV products. The work will be performed in Cadillac, Michigan, at AAR's Mobility Systems manufacturing and integration facility.
Through its Mobility Systems operating unit, AAR has built a reputation as a leading provider of mobility products to the government and defense industries. AAR Mobility Systems designs, manufactures, and supports a wide variety of rapid deployment equipment and air-mobile expeditionary systems.
