Lockheed Martin to help Royal Jordanian Air Force control, defend its airspace

  • 13-Nov-2012 12:57 EST

The U.S. Air Force awarded Lockheed Martin a $26 million foreign military sales contract to modernize the Royal Jordanian Air Force's national air command, control, and communications infrastructure. Lockheed Martin will provide the Kingdom of Jordan with an integrated, real-time air picture across multiple command centers and many remote sites to better protect the country's airspace. The system, known as Omnyx, will combine sensor, voice, and data communications to provide interoperability throughout the Royal Jordanian Air Force and other elements of Jordan's armed forces. With input from radars and other data links, the system will assist in detecting incoming air traffic and also provide the capabilities needed for airspace management, air sovereignty and air defense missions. Lockheed Martin successfully fielded similar command and control systems in Iraq, Kazakhstan, and Taiwan, in addition to 10 North Atlantic Treaty Organization countries.
