XTEK has received a purchase order from the ADF for Small Unmanned Aerial System (SUAS) spare parts worth $3.2 million.
The order follows on from the long-term support contract with the ADF, which was secured by XTEK in September 2019. This support contract is for an initial period of three years, with multiple options to extend up to 2026, and is expected to be worth up to A$35 million.
XTEK’s SUAS repair and maintenance facility in Canberra will continue to provide support to the ADF’s growing WASP AE SUAS fleet. XTEK’s support services consist of spare parts, training, maintenance and repairs, including installation of spare parts, electronics and composite materials of the product itself.
Under the previously secured supply contracts to the ADF, over fifty AeroVironment WASP AE SUAS have been delivered, with more systems scheduled to be delivered in 2020.
