PARIS - On behalf of France, Italy and the United Kingdom governments, OCCAR (The Organisation for Joint Armament Co-operation) has notified a New In Service Support (N-ISS) contract with the Franco-Italian consortium, Eurosam, which is co-owned by MBDA and Thales.

It replaces the first ISS contract that has been in place since July 2012. This contract has been a premiere in a major multinational armament program: OCCAR and Eurosam have collaborated to create a support community that is operationally compliant with the requirements of the three nations and five end users (armies, navies, air force).

The N-ISS contract - which runs for five years from January 2, 2018 - will include in-service support for French and Italian land and naval systems (SAAM-Fr, SAAM-It, PAAMS and SAMP/T) as well as all ASTER missiles (ASTER 15, ASTER 30 and ASTER 30 Block 1) from France, Italy and the United Kingdom.

The new contract represents a major upgrade from its predecessor and includes not only focused improvements (introduction of repair packages and simplified management) but also cost-efficient, long-term and tailored life cycle continuity support (anticipating major overhauls and addressing long-term obsolescence).

The new five-year contract enables the three nations, OCCAR and industry to make common contractual analyses via periodic reviews, which incorporate any potential changes to nation specifications beyond the performance of logistics and support activities.

Speaking during the contract signing ceremony, Abdoulaye Samba, Eurosam managing director, commented: "Over the past years, Eurosam systems, whether SAAM, PAAMS or SAMP/T, have protected our home nations forces all over the world, contributing to their freedom of action and our nations influence. We are proud to have been at their side for all this time, making all efforts to keep their operational availability at the highest level."

"I take the renewing of our in-service support contract as a strong show of confidence from our home customers in the benefits of working in co-operation together with OCCAR and Eurosam. This is of special significance at a time when 25 European nations have decided to join forces for improving their military capabilities and strategic autonomy into the Permanent Structured Co-operation."

KIEV -- State Kyiv Design Bureau Luch - together with domestic company Radionics - conducted successful tests of the C-125M Pechora modernized anti-aircraft missile system.

The C-125 missile system underwent an integrated modification of all elements, including modernization of missiles, as well as the use of a new radar station built on solid-state elements.

During the tests, the C-125 fired at air targets using new 5B27D-M2 missiles equipped with a semi-active radar homing device. This ensures detection and engagement of the fighter-class air targets at a distance of not less than 20 km. This greatly increases guidance accuracy, ensuring engagement of even highly evading targets.

The initial section of the missile moves along the aerobalistic trajectory, significantly increasing the C-125M's engagement area, to more than 40 km. The engagement area's maximum height is 25 km.

Preparation of production facilities for serial modernization of 5B27D-M2 missiles is currently being carried out at Luch.
