Selex ES, a Finmeccanica company, is attending the Doha International Maritime Defence Exhibition (DIMDEX) from 25-27 March. The company will showcase its state-of-the-art AESA radars for surveillance and defence, as well as other key technologies relevant to requirements in the Gulf region.
Selex ES has a significant presence in Middle Eastern maritime programmes, providing complete integrated combat systems. Outside of the naval domain, the company is currently engaged in a number of high profile programmes in the region including providing over 60% of the avionic systems, including key sensors such as the radar for Eurofighter Typhoons.
At the show, Selex ES will be focusing on its advanced KRONOS AESA radar products, now the most powerful multifunctional radars on the market for land and naval applications. The KRONOS Land and KRONOS Grand will be highlighted, showing how Selex ES has managed to combine the range performance and endurance of a surveillance radar with the precision, speed and reliability of a fire control radar.
The company will also be exhibiting its successful Seaspray family of AESA radars which are being used worldwide for airborne surveillance including by the US Coast Guard. Rounding out the portfolio, Selex ES will also be exhibiting the RAT31 DL/M, an advanced 3D surveillance radar that meets modern long-range radar requirements and can support air forces and army deployments during peace-keeping missions.
Ready for export to the Gulf region, the Miysis Directed InfraRed CounterMeasure (DIRCM) system will also be on show at the Selex ES stand. The system protects aircraft and their occupants by accurately locating, tracking and defeating inbound threats.
Another area that Selex ES will be promoting at DIMDEX is its security solutions, including protection for the region’s nationally important oil and gas industries. Also in the security domain, Selex ES can provide solutions for the region’s national border protection requirements and can also bring its expertise in cyber security across a range of market sectors including defence, banking and finance, energy and gas production.
“Qatar is a strategic market for Selex ES” said Luca Gennaretti, Selex ES’s country manager for Qatar. “We have strong ties in the Arabian Gulf and a number of successful collaborations. At DIMDEX, we’re in the ideal position to offer our advanced range of systems and technologies to address challenging maritime requirements and support the region’s technological growth strategies.”
