nato AWACS aircraft

After an international competition, INTRACOM Defense Electronics (IDE) extended its existing agreement with Boeing, within the frame of the upgrade programme communication, navigation, surveillance / air traffic management (CNS / ATM) of NATO airborne warning and control system (AWACS) aircraft.

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

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