    More AAI UAS Stuff

    The 2nd contract below is new to me. It may be to re-power the RQ-7B Shadow's with the more powerful Orbital Heavy Fuel Engines.


    AAI Gets $600M Aerosonde Order from US Special Forces Command
    Posted on March 7, 2012 by The Editor


    US Special Forces Command (SOCOM) selected the AAI Aerosonde to provide intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) services. The mid-endurance unmanned air systems (MEUAS) award, worth up to $600 million over time, will see AAI operate and maintain the small unmanned aircraft on SOCOM’s behalf.

    Textron, AAI’s parent company, declined to provide additional details, including aircraft type and payloads. However, AAI officials told Flightglobal in January of their intent to bid the contract with a revamped version of the Aerosonde Mk 4.7.

    The modified Aerosonde, known internally as ‘Aerosonde-G,’ weighs 34kg [75lb] and includes a heavy fuel engine with significantly increased power. The aircraft uses the same ground control station as the RQ-7, a system also built by AAI that is widely operated throughout US ground forces.

    Aerosonde and two others were selected to fulfill the US Navy’s ISR services contract, a similar contractor-owned, contractor-operated contract worth up to $874 million.
