Elettronica has enjoyed a long friendship with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and its armed forces. This began with the company supplying advanced electronic warfare equipment to major Saudi defense programs like the Eurofighter Typhoon combat aircraft.

Over the years, Elettronica has deepened this commitment. Initially, it supplied subsystems equipping platforms used by the Kingdom’s armed forces. Since then, Elettronica a prime contractor, directly furnishing its systems, expertise and solutions in the Electromagnetic Support Operations (EMSO) domain.

Elettronica announced a further expansion of its relationship with Saudi Arabia during this year’s inaugural World Defense Show. Elettronica is establishing a Limited Liability Company (LLC) in the Kingdom.

This will give Elettronica a constant and consistent presence in the country. The LLC not only helps Elettronica better support Saudi Arabia’s armed forces, it also supports Saudi Vision 2030. This strategic initiative was launched in April 2016 by His Royal Highness Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. Saudi Vision 2030 will diversify the Kingdom’s economy and see key investments by the government.

As part of the LLC, Elettronica will transfer technology into the new company while expanding its partnerships with local enterprises. Under the umbrella of the new limited liability company, Elettronica will enhance the EMSO training it provides locally. Elettronnica is also planning collaborative product developments in the fields of counter-drone technology, together with land, naval and air systems.

Beyond the establishment of the LLC, Elettronica announced the signature of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Shamal, a Saudi defense company. Through this MOU the two companies will explore electronic warfare training provision in Saudi Arabia.

“Operational systems are important, but so is the provision of electronic warfare training and education. Elettronica looks forward to meeting delegates at this year’s World Defense Show and showcasing our partnership with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as well as our services, expertise and products in the EMSO domain,” said Gianluca Trezza, Vice President International Marketing and Sales.

Based in Rome, Italy, Elettronica Group has been on the cutting edge of Electronic Warfare for more than 70 years, supplying strategic surveillance capabilities, self-defense and electronic attack systems for naval, airborne and ground use to the Armed Forces and Governments of 30 Countries.
