Russia's A-100LL flying laboratory for its advanced long-range radar detection and control aircraft has made its maiden flight, Russian news agency Tass reported Wednesday.
The flight for the airborne radar system proceeded in a normal manner, Tass quoted officials from the United Instrument-Making Corporation as saying.
The A-100LL flying lab is based on the A-50 and is being developed to replace the A-50 and A-50U long-range radar detection and control aircraft.
It will be used for ground and flight tests of various system elements, including electromagnetic compatibility and information exchange protocols.
Danish CV90s to receive BAE battle management systems
The CV90 is an array of tracked vehicles designed and built by BAE Systems Hägglunds, BAE said in a statement.
The monetary value of the contract to provide Denmark-specific battle management radio systems was not disclosed.
The vehicle's open electronic architecture makes possible the integration of any customer country's chosen system, as well as regular updates of vital electronics, the company said.
BAE's contract calls for cooperation between the company and Danish industrial partners. It is a deal the company says will provide a foundation for jobs, tech transfer and economic development.
There are more than 1,280 vehicles from the nine CV90 variants in service with seven European countries. The latest model is a Norwegian variant currently in production.
