BAE Systems and AVX Aircraft Company Join to Compete for US Navy Medium Range Maritime Unmanned Aerial System Program



BAE Systems and AVX Aircraft Company Join to Compete for US Navy Medium Range Maritime Unmanned Aerial System Program


Bae Systems, December 01, 2011 - SAN DIEGO – BAE Systems and AVX Aircraft Company have combined expertise in system and subsystem integration and rotorcraft design to compete for the U.S. Navy’s Medium Range Maritime Unmanned Aerial System (MRMUAS). The MRMUAS will provide a multi-intelligence, reconfigurable platform for operation from all air-capable ships. The joint team recently submitted its response to the Navy’s Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) to develop this future sea and land-based vertical take-off and landing unmanned aerial system.

This solution integrates AVX’s patented new aircraft configuration with BAE Systems’ onboard common autonomous mission systems, payloads, mission control system and support capabilities to provide the U.S. Navy a weapon system that exceeds MRMUAS mission requirements. The team’s highly capable, flexible and affordable weapon system leverages state-of-the-art subsystems, a modular open system architecture and a common mission system design that facilitates reuse.

After examining a range of air vehicle options for MRMUAS, including modifying existing commercial and military helicopters, BAE Systems and AVX concluded the Navy’s requirements cannot be met by systems currently on the market. The team brings together AVX’s extensive rotorcraft experience and BAE Systems’ system and subsystem integration expertise, to provide the Navy a weapon system that exceeds MRMUAS mission requirements at low total ownership cost.
