Posted 18 February 2019 · Add Comment

Abu Dhabi's Advanced Military Maintenance Repair and Overhaul Center (AMMROC) and BAE Systems’ Electronic Systems business are to work together on aviation MRO opportunities that will allow both companies to better support the UAE Air Force and Air Defence.

Executives from both organisations signed an MOU at today's IDEX show in Abu Dhabi.
“Our agreement with AMMROC allows us to work with an established leader in MRO and benefit from the skill and experience of their local workforce in the UAE,” said Paul Markwardt, vice president of survivability, targeting and sensing solutions at BAE Systems’ electronic systems business.
Under the MOU, the two organizations will work closely together on multiple possible projects, ranging from testing and repair services to manufacturing, support, and product installation. Potential projects include BAE Systems’ avionics, communication, display, sensor, and survivability products.

Primarily the agreement will cover BAE technology on the F-16 fighter. According to AMMROC's COO, Tim German, the plan is to develop the knowledge transfer and eventually enable manufacturing of the parts.  
“This MOU enhances AMMROC’s position in delivering a fully integrated, world class MRO solution in accordance with industry best practices,” said AMMROC CEO Abdul Hakeem Ahmed Saif Al Muflahi. “The potential projects represent an exciting opportunity for both companies to work together in the field of MRO."
