Thales Wins Contract from USAF for Deployable Instrument Landing Systems

Thales has won a contract from the US Air Force, or USAF, to provide deployable instrument landing systems, or D-ILS. The systems will be used in airfield environments where the ability to provide precision guidance to aircraft on final approach during low visibility or low-ceiling weather conditions - while also being able to quickly set-up, activate, break-down and re-locate - are critical. The Thales D-ILS will provide the equivalent of fixed-based Instrument Landing System capability at tactical airfields and environmentally diverse regions such as areas of natural disaster or humanitarian relief efforts. The Thales D-ILS is a COTS system based on the Thales ILS 420 - a fixed-based, dual frequency ILS which is the industry's next generation ILS with more than 700 fixed-base systems chosen worldwide for civil and military applications. The contract being announced includes delivery of two Production Representative Units (PRUs) along with technical orders and provisional technical documentation, training development and conduct, system analysis, architecture and engineering, and contractor support. The USAF plans to purchase up to 38 systems over the coming years.

Investors Reportedly Seek To Acquire Defense Assets of Airbus

Buyout firms are dominating the bidding for defense assets that Airbus Group SE (ENXTPA:AIR) is seeking to sell, according to people familiar with the talks. The Carlyle Group LP (NasdaqGS:CG), KKR & Co. L.P. (NYSE:KKR) and The Blackstone Group L.P. (NYSE:BX) are among private-equity firms that bid in the first stage of the auction, said the people, who asked not to be named because the disposal process is private. Rheinmetall AG (DB:RHM) and Thales SA (ENXTPA:HO) also submitted proposals by a July deadline, another person said. The assets for sale comprise Airbus’s defense sensors and border security businesses, limiting the Toulouse, France-based company’s non-airliner activity to military aircraft, missiles, space launchers and satellites. A deal with a private-equity firm could let Airbus offload all of the unwanted operations rather than seeking industry buyers for each. Airbus spokesman Rainer Ohler said he couldn’t comment on the progress of the auction. Neither Catherine Armstrong, a spokeswoman for Carlyle, nor Andrew Dowler of Blackstone would comment. Kristi Huller and Ludo Bammens, spokespeople for KKR didn’t respond to e-mailed requests for comment.
