AAI Corporation has been selected to provide the ground control station for the US Army’s long-endurance multi-intelligence vehicle (LEMV) programme.

Under the $8.9m contract, AAI will provide a ground control station variant for the LEMV, a long-duration hybrid airship system.

The AAI ground control station will be Nato standardisation agreement (STANAG) 4586 compliant and have specific features for interoperability with allied assets.

The launch-and-recovery ground control station will utilise multiple work stations to provide the users with complete flight control from take-off to landing.

Additional work stations will also be located at a fixed remote site for aircraft command and control, processing, exploitation and dissemination of information.

Northrop, the prime contractor of the programme, said the system is scheduled for delivery within an 18-month period for operational evaluation.
