Posted 16 January 2018 · Add Comment

Cobham announced today that its Special Mission business has been awarded a follow on contract to deliver Operational Readiness Training to NATO for up to five years.



The contract, which was won after a competitive tender process, will deliver electronic warfare and threat simulation training in order to prepare NATO allied forces for the complex and multi-layered front-line threats of today and the future.

Training will be delivered using Cobham owned and operated aircraft, crewed by highly experienced Cobham aircrew, carrying a suite of either NATO furnished equipment or Cobham’s in-house developed electronic warfare training podded technology.

Cobham has over 30 years of experience in enhancing mission success and providing operational assurance through the delivery of effective operational readiness training to military forces across the globe including NATO, the United Kingdom and Middle East amongst others.

Darren Moncrieff, Vice President of Cobham Special Mission said: “Securing this follow on contract, with a customer as prominent as NATO, demonstrates that we have a world leading, technically advanced operational training capability that is innovative yet affordable.

"Our training solution is able to meet the current training requirements of a modern military fighting force, and can adapt to meet future threats and requirements. Cobham remains committed to providing NATO with world leading training and technology solutions.”
