Cobham scores contract hat-trick worth over $1.4bn

Cobham announces that the three major contracts it has been awarded since June 2016 total in excess of $1.4bn


Farnborough - Cobham is proud to announce that the three major contracts won since June 2016 totaled over $1.4bn. Contracts in the last month include the AVIATOR S Aerospace Communications and Radio and Audio Integrated Management Systems (RAIMS) for Airbus and the Australian QantasLink extension. These contracts reflect Cobham's position as a leading global technology innovator and the commitment shown by the company to its customers to provide world-class solutions.


The 10 year A$ 1.2 billion contract, which continues the provision of airline services to QantasLink, will support their fleet of 20 Boeing 717 aircraft to the end of 2026. The Cobham-Qantas partnership commenced in 1991 and Cobham remains the only third party trusted to operate under the Qantas brand, with operations across Australia into all States and Territories carrying more than 2 million passengers per year on behalf of QantasLink.


The Airbus AVIATOR 200 S contract, which will see the Single Aisle & Long Range aircraft families being fitted with Cobham communications technology from 2018, could be worth some USD $200 million with the potential for additional revenue as the demand for Satcom capability on board aircraft increases.


The AVIATOR 200S shipset aims at providing voice and data air-ground communication for the Aircraft Control Domain (ACD) and the Airline Information Services Domain (AISD) as well as to the Passenger Information and Entertainment Services Domain (PIESD) in its alternate configuration (AVIATOR 700S).   


The third contract won in June, also awarded to Cobham's Communications and Connectivity sector by Airbus, is to supply its new digital Radio and Audio Integrated Management System (RAIMS) for the A320neo aircraft family, worth around $350m.


Cobham's RAIMS, already fitted on Airbus A380 and A350 XWB aircraft series, offers savings in space, weight, amount of equipment required, acquisition and operation costs, while offering pilots a single point for communication control.
