Boeing to Demonstrate Vigilare Air Battle Management System at IDEX 2009


ST. LOUIS.- Boeing [NYSE: BA] will demonstrate the Vigilare integrated air battle management command-and-control (C2) system Feb. 22-26 at the International Defence Exhibition and Conference (IDEX) in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

The event will mark Vigilare’s first appearance at an international trade show outside Australia, the country for which the system is currently in development. Boeing plans to highlight a variety of defense and situational-awareness capabilities at IDEX.

“Boeing is excited to show potential customers from the Middle East and around the world a wide spectrum of our defense products and capabilities,” said Jeff Johnson, vice president of Business Development - Middle East and Africa, Boeing Integrated Defense Systems. “We believe that whether they choose the C-17 for airborne humanitarian lift or Vigilare technologies and 737 Airborne Early Warning and Control for situational awareness, we can meet their regional defense and security requirements.”

Vigilare is an integrated C2 system that combines input from a range of platforms and sensors for wide area surveillance and air battlespace management. The program is on schedule to deliver to Australia in December 2010.
