SAUDI ARABIA. Advanced Electronics was awarded a $17 million contract modification to provide logistics support for the F-15SA cyber protection system for the Royal Saudi Air Force. The deal modifies a previous $29.9 million contract for cyber protection and related facilities, awarded in 2017.

It funds three years of in-kingdom contractor logistics support for the cyber protection system, as well as mobilization, de-mobilization, transportation, and housing expenses for support personnel.

The contract is a foreign military sales acquisition through the U.S. and Saudi Arabia, authorized in 2015 as part of an agreement that also authorized the sale and upgrade of several F-15 variant aircraft to the kingdom.

The total cumulative value of the contract is $150.8 million.
