Share Article

$1.3 million deal doubles the number of aircraft being tracked. The aircraft tracking and flight following system provides critical operating information on the whereabouts and status of aircraft for the Iraqi Air Force.

At Helitech today, in booth FTE 1717, Guardian Mobility announced the Iraqi Air Force has expanded its deployment of Guardian aircraft tracking solutions for its air fleet. It added an additional 60 aircraft, for a total of more than 125 aircraft - both fixed wing and helicopters -- being tracked in real time by Guardian 3x and 3i aircraft tracking devices.

The agreement has an initial value of US$1.3 million over a five-year term.

The system has been in place for more than two years now, and it has provided critical operating information, on demand, as to the whereabouts and status of aircraft, on fleet utilization and on any incidents as they arise in Iraq.
