[Avionics Today 10-28-2014] MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates (MDA) has been awarded a $35 million contract amendment by the Commonwealth of Australia to transition its Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) services to the country following completion of the currently contracted services in Afghanistan.

MDA will provide the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) with UAV operations and related services within Australia through December 2017, with options for up to an additional three years. MDA’s service supports the RAAF plans to further develop Australia’s unmanned aircraft surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities.
