MASS Wins £1.2m Contract for RAF Tornado Equipment

May 2008
MASS Consultants Ltd has been awarded a contract with value in excess of £1.2m by Ultra Electronics Sonar and Communication Systems. This contract is for the design and manufacture of electronic equipment for the RAF’s Tornado aircraft. Work will start immediately, to be completed in the first half of next year.

MASS will provide new cockpit control units to allow the crew to operate the upgraded radios on the Tornado. These units will provide secure communications within and outside the aircraft, and will enable the aircraft to operate with coalition forces.

Andy Thomis, Managing Director of MASS, said:

“This contract reinforces MASS’s credentials as a leading supplier of secure communications equipment for military aircraft. We are very pleased to have the confidence of such a prestigious customer as Ultra for this important programme.”
