A Thomas Global spokesperson confirmed to Defence Connect the bulk of this work will be done in Australia, and some in the US.

David Barnes, COO of Thomas Global, said the new arrangement will allow the company to continue to support some of the world's largest aerospace primes.

"Thomas Global is pleased to have secured one of the industry's largest orders of new avionic CRTs, meaning that we can offer operators continued, best-in-class support across a range of Honeywell, Thales, Rockwell Collins and GE CRT-based cockpit displays for years to come," said Barnes.

"As industry attention turns to newer technologies, we aim to provide an efficient end-of-life for these critical displays."

Thomas Global has previously worked on defence projects, including the Army’s Australian Light Armoured Vehicle (ASLAV). Thomas Global and Thales Australia partnered to deliver nine upgraded Crew Procedural Trainer (CPT) turrets for the vehicles. ASLAV CPT is a simulator that enables the crew commander and gunner to practice gunnery skills without the need to use live ammunition.
