British Aerospace Australia has won a A$10 million ($7.6 million) contract to supply the Australian Army with five Lockheed-Sanders P-Star radar alerting and cueing systems for its Bofors RBS 70 portable surface-to-air guided-weapon system. The system, now in use with the US Army and other countries, detects incoming aircraft, provides an audio warning, and designates it on a computer screen. Included in the contract are provision of a simulator, communications system, and locally developed software displays and training. The systems are due for delivery by June 1998.
