(Raven Aerostar) has secured a subcontract with a value of $3.6 million for products to TCOM L.P. for the KSA Modified Persistent Surveillance Systems - Tethered (PSS-T) Large Systems in Saudi Arabia under a Foreign Military Sales program with the U.S. Army.
The company claims it will provide its Vista F25 radar systems for the PSS-T system throughout a five-year period of performance with a work completion date of March 23, 2027. A subsequent task order award is anticipated to supply spares, integration support, reach-back support, training, and sustainment.
