CARSON CITY, NV--(Marketwire - March 21, 2013) - Tactical Air Defense Services, Inc. (TADF), an aerospace/defense services contractor that offers tactical aviation services, aircraft maintenance, and other aerospace/defense services to the United States and Foreign militaries, is pleased to announce that TADF's wholly-owned subsidiary, AeroTech Corporation, has been awarded a one-year contract to provide subject matter expertise to Camber Corporation at the Redstone Arsenal, Huntsville, Alabama for the U.S. Army Apache Program Office.
In the initial 4-month phase of the contract, which begins immediately, TADF will support the U.S. Army Apache AH-64E Helicopter Development and Modernization Product office.
A multi-year follow-on contract is also expected to be awarded, in which TADF anticipates it will perform a significant role, as the program will continue testing the integration of the LINK-16 communications system and the Cyber-Interoperability of the future Apache Helicopter.
The AH-64E is the first Army helicopter to integrate the LINK-16 communications system, which will allow it to connect, through voice and data streams much like over IP, to other advanced joint-service platforms such as the USAF F-15, F-16, and AWACS, the Navy FA-18 and E-2, and the UAS platforms. This system provides the Apache pilot with real-time situational awareness of both threat and friendly forces, and is adaptable to the numerous varied missions.
Alexis C. Korybut, Chief Executive Officer of TADF, stated, "We are extremely pleased that TADF has received this important contract to assist the U.S. Army in developing such a ground-breaking program as the research, testing, and implementation of the Apache AH-64E Helicopter. It is another first for TADF to be on the cutting-edge of development of new programs and technologies, and we have high expectations that this contract will soon lead to the award of additional contracts within this area and related subject matter expertise."
