The UK MoD has appointed Aquila for air traffic support in the Falklands, while Argentina criticises British presence in the region.

The UK MoD has appointed Aquila Air Traffic Management Services to support its air defences and provide surveillance and communications services at air defence radar sites in the Southwest of England and the Falkland Islands.

Aquila will provide servicing and maintenance of the Type 101 and Type 102 radar and communications systems.

The company already provides air defence support services to the MoD at test ranges in the Shetland Islands and the Outer Hebrides.

Under the new partnership, known as Project Samson, Aquila extends its support of air defence sites beyond the UK.

Auila specialises in integrated solutions and support
