Extension of NATO – IDE Contract for AWACS Aircraft

October 13, 2015: After an international competition IDE (INTRACOM Defense Electronics) extended the existing agreement with Boeing, within the frame of the upgrade program CNS/ATM (Communication, Navigation, Surveillance/ Air Traffic Management) of NATO Airborne Warning & Control System (AWACS) aircraft. 

The new project of IDE concerns specialized subsystems of the AWACS aircraft and will be completed in May 2017.

The CNS/ATM upgrade program is a joint development effort of NATO and the US Air Force, and therefore generates prospects for expanding the cooperation for USA early warning aircraft as well.
