Ultra Electronics Awarded an $18.4 Million Electronic Warfare Contract

19 MAY 2016

Ultra Electronics announced today that its Ultra TCS business, based in Montreal, has been awarded a contract valued at $18.4 million for a customer in a NATO country with options for after-sales support. Ultra will provide Electronic Warfare equipment and engineering support for the delivery of UAV platforms that will be used in surveillance missions.

Under this contract, Ultra TCS will provide a variant of its ALR-510 ELINT (ELectronic INTelligence) system, systems engineering, installation and test support. The ELINT system will be used aboard the UAV and controlled from a ground support center using Ultra TCS' TALON software. Ultra TCS will also provide products produced by Ultra EWST: a Radar Threat Simulator for use in the ground support centre and a flight-line go/no go tester.

Rakesh Sharma, Chief Executive of Ultra commented:
"I am pleased that Ultra has been awarded this contract. It is one of the opportunities that moved from last year to this, referred to in the 2015 Prelim announcement. This is a significant opportunity and demonstrates Ultra's established ability to supply and support EW systems combining capabilities between TCS and the recently acquired Herley businesses."
