Cobham and GA-ASI Extend Partnership to Provide UAV Whole Life Support in the UK and Australia

Cobham Aviation Services (Cobham) and General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Inc. (GA-ASI) have today signed a Teaming Agreement to create an affiliation covering whole life support arrangements for GA-ASI products in the UK and Australia. The teaming arrangement focuses on the provision of support for the Predator® B / MQ-9 Reaper® Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) system currently in operation with the Royal Air Force (RAF), as well as future RPA opportunities in Australia.

In response to the Teaming Agreement extension, Peter Nottage, President, Cobham Aviation Services commented:

“Cobham and GA-ASI have been working in partnership for more than ten years to cover UAV whole life support requirements. This Teaming Agreement enables us to apply our specialist capabilities in supporting sophisticated, fit-for-purpose aerial platforms that perform special missions. We look forward to continuing working with our US partner to deliver such support services.”

Frank Pace, President, Aircraft Systems, GA-ASI expressed his pleasure at the agreement and noted:
“The proven and affordable persistent surveillance capabilities of the Predator B aircraft are due in large part to the impressive team that keeps them flying. This expanding partnership with Cobham, a UK and Australian industry leader, provides Reaper operations with timely, flexible, and integrated logistics support from highly-regarded and seasoned Cobham teams. We look forward to continuing this productive relationship with our Cobham teammate in the years ahead.”
