Design of the facility will be done at Rockwell's Collins Defense Communications facility in Richardson, Texas. CSII will install the facility at Kuwait's main navy base. The new facility will enable the Kuwait Navy to repair up to 75 percent of all communications equipment failures on its ships and ground stations.

CSII recently completed and commissioned the Kuwait Navy's ground station communications program. With the addition of the repair facility, the State of Kuwait will have the most modern communications stations in the Middle East.
