AAL has recently signed a long term agreement with the New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) for the provision of Operational Support Services (OSS).
AAL's proven capability in this area over the past 35 years together with its ability to deliver on a complex variety of operational services that involves some unique aspects, meant the contract was awarded sole source to AAL.
As part of the agreement AAL provides support in the form of vessels, aircraft, targets, training, ranges, scoring systems and people to assist the NZDF with its training and operations, predominantly in New Zealand, and occasionally supporting NZDF elements overseas.
This new agreement has been expanded to include maintenance and operation responsibility for additional support equipment. Also included in the agreement is a mechanism for AAL to potentially support foreign visiting militaries. AAL has been providing support to the NZDF since 1984 and is pleased to have been selected to continue to supply a widening range and scope of services and build on their close relationship with the NZDF.
