BAE Systems Delivers MOKYS Prototypes to Slovak MoD

Category: Contracts

Bratislava, Slovakia -- BAE Systems has delivered the first seven prototypes of a mobile military communications system (MOKYS) to the Slovak Ministry of Defense (MoD).

After a series of successful tests, armored vehicles, including a Slovak TATRAPAN and a BAE Systems RG-32M equipped with MOKYS communications and information systems technologies were handed over in an official ceremony in Presov.

"This has been a great team effort with our partners, including the MoD, to deliver these prototypes on time and to budget," said John Barter, BAE Systems director for the Slovak Republic. "MOKYS utilizes the most modern communication technology and will ensure that the Slovak Armed Forces can operate throughout the entire spectrum of NATO operations, both military and non-military."

"We have agreed to a number of projects which will deliver significant value to the Slovak economy," said Barter. "We look forward to delivering this challenging program."

Included with the MOKYS prototypes, was a BAE Systems RG-32M mine-hardened vehicle to the Slovak MoD. This vehicle has been fitted with MOKYS equipment and is the first of seven such vehicles to be ordered by the Slovak MoD for this role.

The MOKYS system supports secure data transfer of audio, text, and video and will meet force requirements at the tactical-command level. It is designed to be modular, highly mobile, and independent of changes in configuration of forces.

The Slovak Ministry of Defense will conduct military trials during March after which BAE Systems expects to be awarded an initial production contract.
