MANAMA -- The government of Bahrain signed an agreement with Bell Helicopter to procure a dozen attack helicopters from the firm.

At the Bahrain International Airshow, Bahrain and Bell Helicopter completed a contract for the country to acquire a dozen AH-1Z attack helicopters. Manama was first approved for the sale of the helicopters in April 2018, when the U.S. State Department announced it had approved the potential sale of a dozen AH-1Zs to Bahrain at an estimated cost of $911.4 million.

Included in the April approval notice were onboard systems for the AH-1Zs, including 24 installed T-700 GE 401C engines and two spares;14 AGM-114 HELLFIRE air-to-surface missiles; and 56 APKWS-II WGU-59Bs, which are guided rockets. The helicopters will feature countermeasures, electronic warfare systems, and missile warning hardware.

The U.S. said in April, "Bahrain will use this capability as a deterrent to regional threats and to strengthen its homeland defense. This sale will improve interoperability with U.S. forces."

Deliveries under the contract are expected to begin before the end of 2022, according to Air Recognition, which referenced local media.

NEWTOWN, Conn. -- The Navy Multiband Terminal (NMT) program is the U.S. Navy component of the Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) program. NMT is a multiband capable satellite communications terminal that provides protected and wideband communications. NMT supports extremely high frequency (EHF), advanced EHF low data rate, medium data rate, extended data rate, super high frequency, military Ka (transmit and receive) and global broadcast service receive-only communications.

The goal for the NMT program is to create a military satellite communications system that consolidates capabilities of current and future satellite systems into a single terminal. The system replenishes and improves on the terminal capabilities of the Navy's Military Strategic, Tactical and Relay (Milstar) satellite system; Defense Satellite Communications System (DSCS); Wideband Global Satellites (WGS); and Global Broadcast Service (GBS).

The system equips warfighters with assured, jam-resistant, secure communications. The NMT provides multiband satcom capability for ships, submarines, and protected MILSATCOM shore sites.

Production is expected to wind down around 2027. Efforts will then concentrate on software updates, followed by the development of a next-generation terminal.
