Middle East customers order ISTAR systems

Contacts worth over £2.5m have been awarded to a team from Marshall Land Systems and UTC Aerospace Systems to develop ISTAR imagery ground control stations for two Middle East armed forces.

The two companies are developing a system which is being fitted into a Marshall shelter and then mounted on the back of a military utility vehicle.

Fitted inside the shelter will be ISTAR (Intelligence, Surveillance and Target Acquisition) imagery interpretation equipment from UTC Aerospace Systems.
