Cobham has been awarded a contract to deliver Operational Readiness Training for RAF Lakenheath, as part of a four year deal. The training, which begins later this year, will include exercises in Aerial Gunnery (live fire) and Electronic Attack to prepare USAFE/UK personnel for the increasingly complex front-line threats which they face whilst conducting global operations.
