AAR Awarded $5 Million Contract for Petroleum Quality Analysis System – Enhanced (PQAS-E) Shelters

CADILLAC, Michigan, August 15, 2017 – AAR (NYSE: AIR) has been awarded a contract by Army Contracting Command-Rock Island (ACC-RI) to provide Petroleum Quality Analysis System–Enhanced (PQAS-E) Shelters. The five-year, fixed-price (FFP) indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract is valued at more than $5 million.

The battlefield-ready PQAS-E is a mobile fuel-testing analysis and certification laboratory based on AAR Mobility Systems’ proprietary 20-foot ISO shelter design. The aluminum, lightweight ruggedized shelter was rigorously tested and approved for harsh conditions, weight limitations, ISO construction standards, and Electromagnetic Impulse Shield (EMI) Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) stability by the U.S. Army. The shelter will be integrated with equipment at Rock Island Arsenal and will be capable of testing virtually any fuel for air and land mobile forces prior to use. 

“As a total solution provider, we are leveraging our proven shelter technology to meet the needs of today’s warfighter,” said Mark Platko, General Manager, AAR Mobility Systems. “This contract validates our ability to customize our products to address a wide range of missions.”

As with all of AAR’s rapidly deployable containers and shelters, this shelter will be customized to meet mission requirements and include three different sections: a mechanical porch, an enclosed work area and an enclosed storage room. There will also be extensive seat track mounted horizontally and vertically to the walls to accommodate a wide variety of integration requirements.
