Germany – ITT Exelis Set For ADVIS Supply

On 27th September, the US Army’s Mission and Installation Contracting Command at Fort Bliss, Texas, announced its intention to award a sole source purchase order worth €19 million ($25 million) for the supply of the AN/GSQ-235(V) Air Defence Interoperability Validation System (ADVIS). The purchase order will be awarded to ITT Exelis.

The contract will see the ADVIS system equipping the Luftwaffe (German Air Force) Air Defence School which is located at Fort Bliss, Texas.

ADVIS uses the established tactical datalinks of a ground-based air defence system to provide simulated training scenarios and a synthetic Recognised Air Picture. As well as being used for training, ADVIS can be employed to provide systems interoperability validation.
