This $75,6 mn contract is part of of a $7.3 billion contract between Qatar and the United States, the Air Force along with Raytheon for the developmentof an Air and Missile Defense Operations Center (ADOC) for both US and foreign ground-based air and missile defense systems, USAF said in a statement Wednesday. Gerry Cavallo, program manager said, "We will also ensure that all associated weapons and sensors can operate as an integrated air and missile defense system for the QEAF (Qatar Emiri Air Force)."

In addition to the integration activity described above, Cavallo said that the Letter of Offer and Acceptance specifies secure interoperability with US and coalition forces. Qatar is a member of the Gulf Cooperation Council, a political and economic alliance of six Middle Eastern countries that includes Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Oman.

"The US, coalition forces and potentially the Gulf Cooperation Council share information for united defense, so we need to ensure appropriate security and disclosure protocols are in place," said Cavallo.
