Aerial reconnaissance specialist Strat Aero PLC (LON:AERO) received a much-needed boost from a contract award worth £1.1mln.

The company’s wholly-owned Geocurve subsidiary has been awarded a contract to provide a 3D and virtual reality (VR) survey service for the Environment Agency's Thames Estuary Asset Management 2100 programme.

The contract initially provides fixed revenue of £1.1mln over three years, with work beginning within the current quarter.
