From its inception, AAE has been committed to serving its customers by providing high-quality, cost-effective, turnkey solutions. Originally founded in the early 1980s as a satellite communications company, AAE has evolved into an engineering and management services firm with expertise in a variety of disciplines. Over the years, it has acquired experience working in countries all over the world.

During the late 1980s and early 1990s, AAE provided numerous microwave and satellite based communication systems, as well as contract maintenance and operation services in the Middle East, Far East, Near East, and Africa.
